Album background[edit]

The album was produced and performed in its entireity by Peters Himself, using the basic instrumentation of voice, acoustic guitar and harmonica. 'Acoustic Works' was recorded during the course of 2 years at 'Fort Apache' Boston MA, 'Dreamland', Woodstock NY and 'Mountain & Sea' Wales.'

"I began these recordings in 1995 at Fort Apache studios in Boston USA and ever since then whenever I have been in a recording situation I have cut some more of these songs usually with fans/friends present. In 1997, having completed the final recording sessions at Mountain & Sea Studios Wales time has dictated that this record be released. It has taken more than 10 years to write, at least 2 years to record and over 17 years to produce and together with Acoustic Works 1981-1986 contains 46 performances of songs that have, and will always remain a huge part of my life." Mike Peters, October 1997, Wales. [1]
