Richard Lockwood is best known for his work with Sydney late 60s/early 70s folk-psych outfit Tully, whose three landmark albums are in the process of being reissued on Chapter Music. Chapter also released Tully – Live At Sydney Town Hall 1969-70 in 2010.
But unknown to many, Richard Lockwood did not stop writing songs or recording after the end of Tully in 1972. For 40 years he continued to make music, mostly at home, with rare ventures onto live stages or recording studios. Chapter Music has compiled 40 years of these solo recordings as a 2CD set, In the Doorway Of the Dawn – The Chonicle Of A Song, Volumes 1&2, 1972-2012.
Sadly, Richard Lockwood passed away in September 2012.
