Alcohol & Rain (2023)

Here Be Dragons 25th Anniversary Edition of debut album from 1998.

Each track has been either remixed (remix) or reworked (25) from the original demo tapes (Yes it was Reel to Reel recording back in 1998!). We went back to each track and made tweaks to some tracks to bring them closer to the versions we perform as the songs evolved over the years with added vocals etc. Other tracks were simply remixed.


We'd taken two takes for Sean and chosen the faster one back in 1998 but now prefer the slower one. Also we've added some bonus tracks...

"Child Of The Ocean" was Pat's song and he'd left the band by 2003, it got replaced with two songs from the original sessions "Hair Of The Dog That Bit Me" and "Laura". In addition the tracks "Alcohol & Rain" and "Calon Lan" were added to and improved.
