Our Man In The Field Ltd
IT WAS EVER SO (Single)
Friend of RMHQ, famed Danny & The Champions Pedal-Steel player Henry Senior Jr is currently working with hip Beat Combo OUR MAN IN THE FIELD, who together will be releasing a sparkling new Album when #Lockdown is over.
Until then, here’s their single IT WAS EVER THUS, originally released on May the 4th to coincide with International Firefighters’ Day, but also a song of our times.
Matt Wrack ( General Secretary Fire Brigades Union)
‘I remember vividly the day Clerkenwell fire station closed, along with nine others in London, including my own at Kingsland. The sadness we all felt that day as we walked out of the doors for the last time is something that has stayed with all of us.
Sadly, that day represents just one part of the wider attack on firefighters and the services they work in. Not only have fire stations closed, but we have over 11,000 fewer firefighters than we did almost a decade ago, and fire and rescue service funding has been cut dramatically, too.
It Was Ever So’ is a song that manages to capture not only the grief felt by firefighters as their stations closed, but also the unwavering pride they have in their profession – a sense of pride that cannot be taken away from those taking great risks for to keep their communities safe.’
The record is double sided, with another single on the B side, and includes personalised inserts and lyric sheets.
