Dispossessed album by Roger Marshall



The songs on Dispossessed were recorded by me at home around about 2005-2008. Some of the "instruments", other than guitars and harmonica, come from a Roland guitar synth I was messing about with at that time. Some of these seem to suffer bad timing, (a latency issue I think). But some of the effects work. The "panpipes" seem to suit the song Dispossessed, given the dispossessed native South Americans past and present. Dispossession is really the theme of the album in other tracks too. "Child's play" for example, though a bit fraught, is for the suffering dispossessed children of the world. Listening now I like this album. But I'd probably drop Mystic 2 (which is a silly sequel to The Mystic on Backtracks) from the bunch.

This album was put together after the Backtracks and Lost Count albums. I think of these three albums as a kind of trilogy archive of early work. I had them printed, as CDs, at the same time and Eddie's great artwork for the covers lends a unity to them.

Play Dispossessed songs 
The dispossessed

The one and only man

Into the unknown


Child's play

Risky business

The Mystic 2

Somewhere in the street

What else could I do(but fall in love)

Jazz in the breeze

Until next time

Slave to the street

One of the stars

Day of leaving
