5.0 out of 5 stars Oh pure joy!! 1 Jun 2003
By S. Hawes VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At long, long last! One of the greatest albums ever has finally made it on to CD, and about time too! This is an album I simply love and is at present on a worn out cassette that is badly in need of replacement. One of the greatest concept albums ever written it has a full and loud production that is Alan Price's trademark. Listening to Jarrow Song always gives me a tingle down the spine but there is far more here than simply one track. The title track is beautifully provocative.
Live recently he produced a rich sound as good as anything on this album with just a few musicians, he is a national treasure that deserves far more credit that he has presently recieved and buying this album will do him some justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...but alas his Saviour fell 10 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is very special to me. Mainly because of the song that is the album's title... "Between Today And Yesterday", which has two versions. One on side A and the other on side B. The title song gives away a great spiritual truth that not many in this world know. When I first heard this song I couldn't help but burst into tears. It was a very strange experience. I am not of course saying that you will feel the same way I do about this song, so in summing up the whole album I would say that if you are an Alan Price fan and don't have this album yet, then I would highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars good songs well presented 2 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was an old favourite on vinyl, Alan Price going further than his popular image. The tracks are variable, but no real failures - the title track is excellent. The CD loses some of the balance of the 'yesterday' and 'today' sides on the LP, but the extras are nice to have. If all you know of this album is Jarrow Song, then you have some treats in store.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alan Price with a hint of Randy Newman 21 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't anticipating the reaction I had to this album. It was recommended to me by a colleague at work, but I had reservations (mainly because the Jarrow Song used to grate on me a bit when I was younger), however, I bought it and find it most listenable. Obviously an album of two sides, Yesterday and Today, The first six tracks are brass band-ish, lamenting the lot of working class folk. Stand out tracks for me are Left Over People, Between Today and Yesterday and In Times Like These. The Randy Newman influence is evident throughout, but none more so than on "In Times Like These" which could have come from the Monsters inc or Toy Story soundtracks! Jarrow Song has grown on me a bit, and is on the end of the "Yesterday" set of songs.
The "Today" side is more "poppy" and is more personal at times. The stand out track here is Your Telling me, with some great organ work from the man primarily responsible for the Animals' sound. The album proper ends with a reprise of the title track, which rounds things off nicely. There are 5 bonus tracks, which don't add a great deal to the album, but are nice to have.
All in all a very good album, and one which has encouraged me to investigate Price's work further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Price at his best 4 Jun 2010
By Kevin
Format:Audio CD
If you remember the music of Alan Price of the past then this is his strongest period. This is Alan Price at his very best. When this album originally came out (on vinyl) the first side was "Yesterday" - typical Price looking back at his roots in the North-East. Featured, naturally, was Price's biggest solo hit; "Jarrow Song". The second side was "today" (but, of course, "today" was the seventies!) and was supposed to be a contemporary look at life. This, and the soundtrack Price wrote to and performed in Lindsay Anderson's movie "O Lucky Man", was top quality. Good, strong (with some "social comment") music with some witty lyrics. Although Price is still writing and performing good stuff now, this remains his golden period. Highly recommended.
