GET OUT OF TOWN
Welcome to another Hession Session: Seán's confession to an obsession with the profession of vocal virtuosity! Now that that's out of the way, savour these delightful brand - new versions of some venerable old standards.
Ireland's premier exponent of the swing-a-ding and torch song comes up trumps once again in this, his second album. If you liked the first, this one will really grab you!
Check out Seán's great duet with guest Honor Heffernan on "What now, my Love?", the easy swing of "Tangerine" or the lush reworking of George Harrison's "Something". We think you'll agree that this album confirms Mr. Hession's status as an artist of the first order.
P.S. The band ain't bad either.

YOU'D BE SO NICE TO COME HOME TO
I'M THROUGH WITH LOVE
WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED LOVE?
I'VE GOT A CRUSH ON YOU
SWINGIN' DOWN THE LANE
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
PENNIES FROM HEAVEN
IN THE WEE SMALL HOURS OF THE MORNING
WHAT NOW, MY LOVE?
GET OUT OF TOWN
PLEASE BE KIND
