I Bought this album (A) because I'm a big fan of Gilbert & (B) I was going to LLandudno & Liverpool to see his shows.
And what a show, The man's still got it, his voice sounded as it did in the 70s.
His band has to be the best on tour, and the choice of songs were excellent.
The new songs from Gilbetsville were also excellent, and there was a lot of them played during the show.
This has to be Gilbert's best album since Back to front, His ability to come up with meaningful and sometimes funny lyrics, and catchy a melody is remarkable after so many years.
Buy this album and you wont be disapointed.
This album deserved and should have had much more airplay than it did,and apart from the usual appearance on the Steve Wright show, radio 2 showed no interest at all.
If this album had been made by Elton John, Paul Simon, or Billy Joel, Radio 2 would have played it none stop for months.
But Gilbert Osullivan has never had the credit or recognition he deserves,
He continues to be a master at his craft and deserves better, especialy from the british public and press.
The man deserves to be knighted as have other well known singer songwriters.
Paul Mccartney, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart,and many others have that have been recognised for their contribution to music.
After each show Gilbert goes to meet his fans and has plenty of time for everyone Every male fan gets a handshake every female gets a kiss and everyone gets a picture and an autograph.
None of the others mentioned above treat their fans that way.
The guy's remarkable.
