Can only agree with the previous reviewer. I've been a fan of Kevin Rowland since the first album Dexys made, and have never understood how it is that Geno and Come On Eileen are the only songs that most people know. There is some strange industry silence around Kevin Rowland, despite the fact that he is one of the few artists in the history of, for want of a better word, 'pop', to really do what he does for it's own sake. His writing, voice and approach were responsible more than anybody for me picking a guitar up for the first time. This album was not a commercial success because, for what were in hindsight a myriad of reasons it seems, Kevin didn't write a hit single this time and didn't play the game. Somehow the album is even better for it though. Where Too Rye Ay arguably suffers from having such an overplayed song on it, this album benefits from it's anonymity. As the last reviewer said, it is a revelation, and if he was unaware of the depth of Dexys until rather late in the day, it must have been exceptionally so.
I can only urge you to buy this, and the other albums, and the new best of, and The Bridge video if you can find it, and discover the band that burned brighter than any other, if only for the shortest time.
