Like the very nose on his face, Jimmy Nail is a man going in two directions. Despite being one of Britain's most in-demand actors, he's always cited singing as his true vocation. In 1994, Nail was afforded the luxury of not having to choose when he was landed the lead in a TV drama about a jobbing singer-songwriter. Crocodile Shoes was a project very close to Nail's heart. Despite a cluster of hits under his belt, this was Nail's major songwriting debut. One might infer from songs like "Once Upon A Time" and "Bitter And Twisted" that Nail is happiest in the pub rock idiom. Perhaps though, he was writing for the part. Either way, the standard of his compositions is predictably dwarfed by three submissions from Paddy MacAloon, including the single "Cowboy Dreams". Lest we forget, the Prefab Sprout frontman cut his teeth on the Tyneside pub circuit. "Love Will Find Someone For You" and "Dragons" strike a balance between sentimentality and poetry that Nail would do well to mind. --Peter Paphides

I got this album as a present and wasn't sure what to expect, as it's not the sort of music i'd normally listen to, but i was very pleasantly surprised. It's a great album that you can listen to in any mood, with some particularly powerful tracks such as "Dragons". A very well rounded album from start to finish, with hardly a bad track on it. Well worth a look, even if its not your normal thing.

A lovely album, of mainly low-key gentle or gently-rocking songs (about love, feelings etc).
From start to finish not a duff track, many of them written by Jimmy. Very good session musicians.
If you like Jimmy (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) and accept his singing voice, you should like this album. I can listen to it often, without wanting to skip any track. Wonderful, and Crocodile Shoes 2 is almost as good. Buy both!

I bought this when it first came out and I loved it, and I don't know what I did with the first one but there again I have moved house several times.
But when I saw it again i was more than happy to find it again, well worth the wait to find it.

the disc was in very good condition. having ordered from this seller before and being very satisfied, I was a little disappointed with the level of wear / damage to the case. however, this does not affect the listening pleasure

He had a copy of this which over the years had virtually worn out. Glad I was able to find a replacement copy - good price, quick delivery and a nice surprise for him

Bought to replace the original that got lost. I enjoyed the tv series and wanted the soundtrack to it. Love Jimmy Nail's rusty voice.
