Here come Danny & The Champions Of The World with album number 6 - writing themselves large, giving themselves the space and taking the time to deliver a magnum opus. With Brilliant Light Danny Wilson has made his All Things Must Pass - a big record of hit after hit stretching over two albums plus a further bonus set of instrumentals.

He’s allowed both himself and his band the absolute freedom to explore experiment and collaborate - and they’ve grabbed it with both hands. The Champs are understandably proud of what they’ve achieved. Producer and bass player Chris Clarke says outright it’s the best record the band has come up with so far while for Danny it’s “a bit like taking a peek into somebody’s house, there’s great stuff that immediately grabs your attention and then there’s other stuff and you start out thinking it might be a bit mundane, but as the whole picture takes shape it proves to be incredibly beautiful”. That’s typical Danny Wilson a brave stab at modesty but far too honest to sell himself short. He and his band are already much loved for their whole-hearted openness their democracy and their sheer joy in what they do. They’re going to be loved too for this record. Very soon Brilliant Light will be the soundtrack to an awful lot of people’s lives and that is no small achievement.
