Puccini's Cafe
On a cold August night in 1992, when he returned from a hectic Caribbean tour and after having met his new girlfriend Marian, Jan was involved in a heavy car accident. His revalidation took about six months, after that he settled himself in a new home village and started a new family life. In February 1993 he went back on stage for the very first time after his car accident with his new bass player Manuel Hugas. Doing a very successful theatre-tour that same year, he released his new album 'Puccini's Café' for EMI records in spring 1993.

Tracks: Burger's blues
Your eyes in the whiskey
Spanish roads
Key to the highway
It comes & goes
Blue train
Love is uneven
