Where Did I Go Right?

Where Did I Go Right?

After a falling out, Otway & Barrett went their separate ways with both recording solo albums for Polydor in 1979.

This album was produced by Neil Innes - collaborator with Monty Python and the main songwriter behind The Rutles. It features live favourite Best Dream and Otway's epic take on Aldred Noyes' The Highwayman .

Recorded at Chappell Studios in early 1979 most of the tracks were salvaged from an aborted attempt to record an album in August/September 1978 at Mountain Studios. Whilst Polydor tried to push it as Otway's 'best work to date' it failed to live up to expectation and divided opinion.
