Many will remember the UK top five hit ‘I Will Return’ from 1971, the catchy mixture of fuzz and slide produced by Springwater, the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Phil Cordell.

The ‘Springwater’ album featuring ‘I Will Return’ is here on CD for the first time ever, coupled with Cordell’s 1977 solo album ‘Born Again’, also on CD for the first time.

This set saw Cordell link up with renowned session guitarist Ray Fenwick (ex Spencer Davis Group). The contrast in sound is still as popular and enjoyable now as it was then.

This landmark release kicks off with that classic single, and with both albums remastered and transferred to CD it will fill gaps in any collection of eclectic 70′s pop.

The CD booklet features informative sleeve notes written by Joe Geesin in association with Phil Cordell.


…Angel Air have done their usual first class job with the release...

There's no doubting the quality on display...Although the hit is on here, the best track is actually a very good acoustic piece called 'Country Life'. Cordell really did know how to play!

A fine collection of eclectic 70's pop

Bernard Law, Classic Rock Society (August 2002)

The album sold well at the time, despite being totally instrumental, and eclectic in tone. The melodies are a typical mix of 70s pop and folk…

Joe Geesin, Record Collector (September 2002)

It's the Springwater album that demanded to see the light of day once again. One will keep going back to it time and time again…

Jo-Anne-Greene, Goldmine (November 2002)
