Dodson & Fogg is the musical pseudonym of Chris Wade, a talented and prolific Leeds based singer / songwriter. With four full length albums out under the Dodson & Fogg moniker it's hard to know where to start for the uninitiated - until now, that is. Chris has personally selected his favourite tracks from those first four albums here for our Introduces series.
These recordings have a vintage sound that would have easily fit in with early seventies releases on the Harvest, Deram or Island labels. You can tell a lot about an artist by the company they keep, and Wade is joined on these recordings by Hawkwind's Nik Turner and Trees' Celia Humphris. His albums also feature Mellow Candle's Alison O'Donnell and former Fairport Convention songstress Judy Dyble. He's also an accomplished author with an audio book voiced by Rik Mayall to his credit.
