David Sylvian – The Ink In The Well (12″)

Still in 1984 and this classy cut from the ,then, newly solo David Sylvian. Helped by an Anton Corbijn video and some suitably pretentious text from Paul Morley (ZTT founder and music journalist) A bit of a continuation of the late Japan sound this has a mouth watering roster of guests. Double bass legend Danny Thompson, Ex-bandmate Steve Jansen on percussion, the late,great Kenny Wheeler on Flugelhorn and 70’s session guitar legend, Phil Palmer. If you are successful you hire the best! B-side is an eerie instrumental of an album track with an equally long list of “dream team” musicians, Sakamoto, Jon Hassell etc..
