Signed by Richard Vernon to Blue Horizon Records/Chipping Norton Records in the early 1980's, BERNIE TOWNSEND recorded two singles, 'Another Night' released in 1981 and featured on the late Alexis Korner's Radio 1 Playlist, and 'Little By Little' released in 1982 and featured on the playlist of Bob Harris.
Following the success of 'Another Night', an album was recorded in 1982 which reflected a track roster of cutting-edge songs from the pen of Bernie Townsend and his long-time writing partner Richard Sharpey, just prior to the advent of the new sounds coming out of Nashville and Austin at that time.
The album was ostensibly recorded for the US market. However, for contractual reasons, the product was shelved and remained untitled. Gravel Road Records has since acquired the rights to the album, as it was deemed the release of this product has been long overdue, and, in deference to the legendary and now long gone Chipping Norton Recording Studio, Bernie decided to title his first solo album 'Made On New Street'.
In turn Gravel Road Records have re-released 'Little By Little' which in 1982 received great radio support from Bob Harris and Stuart Cameron. "
