Chas and Dave

'That's What Happens' is the new album by legends Chas & Dave. Dean stepped out with the fellas to shoot the album cover and press images. The album has received critical acclaim and finds the chaps in top form this is what the Guardian say about the album: Chas Hodges and Dave Peacock's first studio album in 18 years will come as a surprise to those who remember their hit-making heyday. They've been working together for 50 years now and this collection of covers harks back to their skiffle and blues roots. There are echoes of Leadbelly and country harmonies on the likes of opener Railroad Bill and Midnight Special, and Hodges's voice has a kind of grit to it that only age and experience can provide on numbers such as Right String Baby. The old joanna doesn't even show up till the swinging, full-band single When Two Worlds Collide, and the only "rockney" track proper is piano-and-bass workout Rocking Gloworm. New Orleans march All By Myself closes the album with solos by Jools Holland and Hugh Laurie, but it's the jazzy I Can't Give You Anything But Love and the penultimate track Glory of Love, both featuring Martin Taylor on guitar, that are the real gems...
