David Byron — That Was Only Yesterday (The Last EP) (2008)

This EP was released in 2008 as a limited edition CD and includes three songs recorded by David Byron in 1984. The story behind the recording is the following. In the end of 1983 Richard Manners contacted Richard “Digby” Smith, known by his work with Rough Diamond, Free, Sammy Hagar, and Mott The Hoople, to put together a band and record some tracks with David.

The group of musicians assembled for the recording included drummer Neil Conteh (who worked with Mick Jagger and David Bowie), bassist Alan Spenner (Joe Cocker, Roxy Music), guitarist Tim Renwick (Elton John, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd) and John “Rabbit” Bundrick (Free, Roger Waters, The Who). In February 1984 this team went to Power Plant Studios in London and recorded three tracks. The idea of a entire album was discussed by sadly that never came to be. In December 2007 the studio tapes were baked and remastered at the Copyroom, London. “That Was Only Yesterday (The Last EP)” was released in March 2008 by CHA Promotions.
