What a voice! Mellow, rich, emotional and resonant. Although definitely his own, there are echoes of Gary Puckett, Cat Stevens, Brook Benton, Scott Walker, Ralph McTell, Kris Kristofferson, OC Smith to name a few. Almost male vocal perfection.
Songs, instrumentation, arrangements and production worthy of Jimmy Webb, Burt Bacharach, et all. The sound of this album is somewhere between 1967 and 1975, but sounds completely at home in the current musical environment.
I cannot recommend this enough if you love great vocalists, if you are a fan of Glen Campbell, Cat Stevens, Richard Hawley, Harry Nilsson, James Morrison etc you will be totally at home here. If you don't know who any of them are, give it a go for a perfect soundtrack to summer.
10/10, almost faultless.
