Song Of The Day: Steve Dawson, “All I Want”

stevedawson

British musician Steve Dawson was a founding member of the hard rock band Saxon, but was let go from the group in 1986. After his sacking, he recorded a series of demos and put together a live band in hopes of scoring a record deal. Sadly, it didn’t come together for him, but the compilation Pandemonium Circus gathers up the various session recordings and a handful of rare live recordings from the era. It wasn’t for a lack of talent; the songwriting is especially strong, and he had a good ear for writing powerful hard rockers that didn’t necessarily shy away from pop sensibilities, as heard in “All I Want,” taken from his first solo demo tape. Pandemonium Circus is available now via Angel Air Recordings.
