‘Swingin’ The Bottles’ combines The Dogs D’Amour BBC sessions with a live show from the Dominion Theatre in London from 1990. All new artwork is provided by Tyla and also included are in depth notes and new interviews with the band – this set features exclusive versions of Dogs classics such as ‘How Come It Never Rains’, ‘I Don’t Want You To Go’, ‘Last Bandit’ and ‘Trail Of Tears’ . The BBC sessions were all recorded around the release of the bands third album ‘In The Dynamite Jet Saloon’ and they feature the classic Dogs line-up of Tyla, Bam, Jo and Steve. The live recording also joyfully captures the chaos and excitement of their incendiary, edge-of-your-seat live performance.

Ever since I can remember music has been part of my life, I remember listening to the radio on a Sunday morning while my Mom was cooking the Sunday roast, I can even smell the beef and roast tatties as I write. My Dad would be busy in the garden or messing about in the garage with the car. My big sister Tricia was still in bed, being a teenager is hard. I was about 8 or 9 years old and wouldn’t even buy my first album or single for quite a few years but what I did have apart from the radio was Tricia’s record collection and also some of my Mom and Dads. It was in fact a Jim Reeves (Moms collection) track that my Dad had asked me to learn to play on my vintage Wonder guitar on the promise of getting me a better one, he then went on to buy me a classical Spanish guitar. I did in fact have my eye on something rather more grand thanks to a photo on the cover of a Chet Atkins Winter Wonderland album. It was a red Gretsch propped up in the snow and it would be 20 more years before I got my hands on one of those beauties, a 1962 Chet Atkins made one year after I was born. I still have it and I’ve stuck with them ever since, mainly my 1970’s White Falcon, but I’ve also got a Gretsch 1950’s Electromatic acoustic and a 2016 Gretsch Black Falcon acoustic.
