Apparently the band hate the first album and its difficult to understand their reasoning. O.K so the songs aren't as tightly knit as later albums but it hardly waste a track and the lenghty 'ballad of a has been beauty queen' has a great organ solo and builds and builds. The harmonies on 'lady constant' are just perfect and the groove on 'hymn to me' is really funky. The album does contain my favourite track in 'mayfly' and the organ work is exemplary. So its a little indulgent and of its time, but so what? The second album 'despite it all' loses the roughnest but it has classics like 'old jarrow' and 'county girl' and the standout 'ebury down'. You could tell by this album where they were heading and as good as the latter albums were these are easily their best and i like long solos!

Mention the name Brinsley Schwarz and few will remember much, if anything , about this band who never quite made it big back in the seventies.
Those who know Nick Lowe of performing and producing fame - "Cruel to be Kind", Dave Edmunds Rockpile, The Pretenders etc should discard any predjudices and listen to 'Brinsley Schwarz' - the first LP of this compilation.
The style is very much like Crosby,Stills, Nash , the Eagles and America in the acoustic guitar /soft rock sound and close vocal harmonies.
Perhaps too anodyne for some, none of the songs really have that much edge apart from Lowe's solo "Rock and Roll Women" , but the album certainly evokes all the nostalgia for that folk/rock/acoustic thing that the Eagles and co did so well.

Its sometimes hard to look back and see how good a project was, as is this LP.
If musicians could produce such quality like this, there would be happy musicians about.
Listen without bias .Especially the "First album"

I have waited years to get hold of a copy of this album on CD. Thank you amazon the wait was well worth it. It sounds just as good today as it did when I first heard it all those years ago.

I was very disappointed with this CD. Absolutely no complaints about the music - my favourite 2 Brinsley Schwarz albums. But BGO what have you done? I have bought many of your CDs and found the remastering faultless, until now. Firstly the sleevenotes display the tracks in order from the first and second albums but on playng the second album comes up first. Secondly and more importantly the level of the music on the pressing is very low and even increasing volume gives a very dull sound (levels vary from track to track on first album). The second album (Despite It All) sounds better but for those seeking decent sound quality,look elsewhere.
