Credits inside the album
- The Spinning Top is a concept
album that tells a story about a man from birth to death.
- The album is mainly acoustic,
although there are some electric guitars on it. "I wanted to show
how exciting acoustic instruments can be, how dynamic and rich and

- Guest artists on the album include
Graham Fox (drums), Robyn Hitchcock (guitar), Danny Thompson
