The correct title for Gary's fourth album is GG, which was released in 1975. At the time it was a complete change in sound for him and to be honest it didn't do him any favours. The album was recorded in the USA with different producers from the familiar Glitter sound and most of the tracks were covers of american songs, probably some desperate attempt to launch Gary in the States again. Anyway the album is ok but I definitely wouldn't recommend to a casual fan or anybody who wants to hear a classic full blown Glitter/Glam album.

When I first heard 'GG' I was bitterly disappointed. Most of the album sounds like American showbiz meets soul and gospel and as such is a HUGE departure from the gritty, drum propelled Rock'N Roll of songs like 'Hello, Hello, I'm Back Again' and the like. As time has gone by though I have gradually warmed to some of the material and been able to appreciate it for what is is - something different.

Gary has always performed lone single here 'Papa Oom Mow Mow' well and though the song is far from Glam Rock it is classic Gary Glitter and has surely the longest and most manic laugh on it of all U.K. hit singles! 'Too Late To Put It Down' also works quite well and Gary's voice booms on top of the busy backing nicely. 'Satan's Daughter' was scheduled to be the follow up to 'Papa' here in the U.K. but when that single bombed and the album failed to take off the single was pulled. While its not a world beater, the song is quite a nice atmospheric soul tinged ballad and Gary sings it well. 'Finders Keepers', 'Easy Evil' and 'Basic Lady' are also pretty good after a few listens - 'Basic Lady' even sounding like a possible single.

Some of the songs here, however, were definitely a bad choice for Gary's voice. The worst of these being the cover of 'Cupid'. Gary sounds very uncomfortable and struggles to hit the right notes or sing in the right key. 'Personality' is also dire and the inclusion of the very different sounding Glitter/Shephard written 'I'll Carry Your Picture (Everywhere)' in between these two songs does nothing for the continuity of the album and highlights what a hotch -potch of ideas 'GG' was/is.

The sound of this MP3 version also varies wildly from time to time.

a more pop direction here' 29 Jan. 2014
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After 11 top ten hit singles and two smash albums , this one came out and it was far more poppy than what came before. It's not bad by any means. but some of it sounds pretty poppy. And it doesn't live up to what came before , or after. HE would return to the top ten and such with his next release. But, this is for completists mainly. And unfortunately , this is a expensive Japanese issue. . G.g had hits right up to the mid 80's. But this was more about pop , except the excellent hit single bonus tracks. "Doing all right with the boys' which is on here too. The sound is decent. And this is far from his greatest work. But it's ok. although his other stuff that decade is a lot better there are some very good songs on here. Just a few of them , though.
