Two double-album CDs by American singer-songwriter Randy Vanwarmer gather together his LPs Warmer, Terraform, Beat Of Love and The Things That You Dream.
Born in Indian Hills, Colorado in 1955, he moved to Cornwall for a few years in his teens, but couldn’t stand the cold winters and moved back to the US.
His claim to fame came in 1979, when self-penned single Just When I Needed You Most became a big hit on both sides of the Atlantic.
It has since been covered by Dolly Parton, Smokie, David Selby and many others.
You’ll find that here, plus US hits Whatever You Decide and Suzi’s Got A Weapon. There are also nice versions of Gallagher and Lyle’s When I’m Dead And Gone and The Lovin’ Spoonful’s Do You Believe In Magic?
Randy died of leukaemia in 2004, at the age of 48, and his cremated remains were shot into space.
