Hoovering The Moon

Hoovering The Moon
If you have toured this web site you will know that Willy Russell has been writing songs since the early 1960s. He wrote not only the book and the lyrics but also the score for his musical Blood Brothers. Plus we can add to this the fact that he has provided the scores for the feature films, Shirley Valentine, Dancin' Thru The Dark and Mr Love as well as for the TV series Connie and the television play Terraces and you might start to wonder why this album has been so long coming...


Hoovering The Moon has been co-produced by Andy Roberts and Willy Russell and contains 14 self-penned tracks. The CD is available with a special portrait by Peter Edwards and a cover designed by Willy's son, Robert.

As well as the musicianship of Willy Russelll and Andy Roberts this CD features some outstanding contributions
