Ian Ashworth and Saddle Tramps

Saddle Tramps is: Ian Ashworth on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Dominic Nicholson on lead, slide and rhythm guitars, Andrea Crowle on lead and harmony vocals, Glenn Delahoy on bass guitar, rhythm guitar, keyboards and harmony vocals, Pete Lewer on drums and Daryl Lee on lead and rhythm guitars.

From memory, the band existed from about 1984 to 1987 and had already folded by the time work had begun on the album.

Together this collection is the sum total of all recordings I have of Ian's original songs and every recording made by Saddle Tramps.
