Bryn haworth let the days go by

Let the Days Go By is the first studio album by British singer-songwriter and guitarist Bryn Haworth, released in 1974 by Island Records.


The first song on the album "Grappenhall Rag" was also issued as a single by Island Records (b/w "I Won't Lie (This Time)", Cat No. WIP 6200).

Interviewed in 2009 about the reception given to the album, Haworth recalled: "It was quite positive actually. I think most of the music press found it quite fresh, you know. Back in those days there was an openness to all styles of music; it wasn't as narrow as it is now. And because it was a mix of songs and styles it seemed to please most people."
