Dereck Higgins – Myths… Realities

After the arrival of Dereck Higgins “Flyover” I wanted to order “Myths… Realities”, but I heard Dereck say in one of his videos that it was sold out on the US bandcamp site.

Luckily however it was still available on the Greek site.

So I ordered from there. It came pretty quick considering and it arrived a few days ago.

First off, the pressing and packaging is again, beautiful. The cover shot is perfect for the album.

I wish all vinyl could look this gorgeous and colorful.

Also included was a CD of the album and a record label sticker and thank you insert. Nice.

So, to the eyes beautiful, and to the ears… the same.

These tracks really mirror the packaging. They are touching, beautiful and hypnotic. I think I may have labelled Dereck as a bass player in my earlier posts, based on the descriptions I had seen of his earlier work and his collaborations, but this album is filled with great guitar work.

The first 3 tracks are a great opening. “Dickinson Drive”, “9-03-2000” and “Echo Guitar” set a tone that will fill you with peace and melancholy. They are so introspective and soothing.

The rest of the album is equally good and I am once again glad I was able to get a copy of this album, particularly on this beautiful vinyl. It is fantastic.

Keep up the great work Dereck!

Your videos and music are an inspiration.
