Back cover quotes ‘due to the strange modulation on the end of Ship to Shore pre-war type gramophones may not function correctly’ and  ‘keep on keeping on, with love, always with love’.
 
Ship to Shore marks the start of NMJ using the name Isle of Light Records for his album releases. His song writing and playing moved between genres of music when he first started playing live though the venues often dictated what and how he played.
 
“The 60’s and 70’s flew by in an avalanche of artistic experiments in all forms of art. Intermingling and crossing genres became a new exciting journey and the world shrank its barriers.
 
Touring and living on the road for months,  I was inspired by the travelling to write. On the edges of the Atlantic a storm created  the piece ‘ Ship to Shore’ as a storm smashed over the fishing village I lived in. That night was scary as high tide also threatened to flood the village. Most villagers were awake all night ‘just in case’. It reminded us Mother Nature is the boss. The next morning life was just a tangle of stuff that had flown everywhere.

The Ship album became a short list of those first few years of gigging life”.
