The Man From Leith (Best of Dean Owens) – VINYL

£22.00

The Man From Leith (The Best of Dean Owens) is a collection of songs from Dean’s 7 official solo albums, from The Droma Tapes(2001) to Southern Wind (2018).

With sleeve notes by Irvine Welsh:
Dean Owens’ music and story also feels like a tribute to the songs inside us, reaching into us to find the threads of our common humanity… As a vocalist Dean is possessed with a voice which soars to the exuberant highs and swoops to melancholic lows that I’ve witnessed break hearts far, far harder than mine. And it perfectly delivers those beautiful songs of love and loss, the pulse of all our lives“.
