He has made many albums since, too numerous to mention here. The interesting point is that all of his albums and his work with the Fleur de Lys continue to attract attention to the present day, steadily selling throughout the world.
His mainstream breakthrough came in 2001 with the single "How Wonderful You Are" and the album 'Harry's Bar' in 2002. Both hit the No 2 spot and have continued to sell remaining in the Amazon charts for 8 years.
The following album 'Shadows on the Wall' reached 44 but suffered due to management problems.
Gordon took a well earned break and wrote his autobiography. It might have ended there. In fact the opposite has happened. The new album 'One Day Soon' is radically different to all of the above and yet there is a subtle link to all that has gone before.
Gordon is and always was a bass player, a very good bass player schooled by the Atlantic Records artists he associated with in the 60's.
It has taken a lifetime to develop his songwriting abilities. This new album joins all of the strands together, his musicianship, his outstanding song-writing, his knowledge of the ways of the world and a wonderful voice that only comes from experiencing that world...
44 years of experience in fact, slowly developing, observing, and discovering his true self.
We believe this has resulted in the best album of his life.
We hope you like it as much as we do.
