O’Connell & Love – Minesweeping
‘Minesweeping’ is the new album by O’Connell & Love, a collaboration between Larry Love, lead singer of Alabama 3 (Ivor Novello winning songwriter, whose songs include The Sopranos theme ‘Woke up this morning’), and Brendan O’Connell, who co-wrote the songs on Larry’s first solo album, Ghost Flight, released under the name of Robert Love in 2006.
