By A Customer on 24 Sept. 2002
Format: Audio CD
This is one of JT's harder albums to find, along with 'One Man Dog' and 'Walking Man', but is well worth discovering for the gems it contains. The single 'Mexico' is one of the best songs Taylor has ever writen, backed up with beautiful vocals from David Crosby & Graham Nash, who also sing on the beautiful 'Lighthouse'. The title track is a funky banjo/bluegrass workout mixedwith skiffle sounds which complements the feel of the album, together with the sweeping joys of 'Music' & the simple beauty of 'Sarah Marie' & 'Wandering'. Best of all is 'You Make It Easy' a gem of a love song that is constructed with the greatness of ease. This is a work from a man who enjoys his music, and can be enjoyed by everyone.

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2010 SHM-CD REMASTER FROM JAPAN ***

Fans of JT will know that only 2-tracks from "Gorilla" are available as remasters - "Mexico" and the cover of Marvin Gaye's 1964 Motown hit "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" (done by Taylor as a duet with Carly Simon) - both of them on the Warners Brothers/Rhino 'Best Of' compilation "You've Got A Friend" from 2003. And sweet they sound too...

But this Japan-only SHM-CD released 7 April 2010 on Warner Brothers WPCD-13823 (Barcode 4943674097364) is the first time the entire "Gorilla" album has been remastered since its release on a dull-sounding US/European CD in the mid Eighties - and the audio quality on this CD reissue is TRULY BEAUTIFUL.

Part of a 6-album campaign (see list below) this 2010 remaster was done by ISAO KIKUCHI in Japan - a non-numbered limited edition on the SHM-CD format (11 tracks, 39:02 minutes). Super High Materials CDs do not require a specific machine to play them on - they're simply a better form of disc created by JVC in 2008 to improve on the original format (unchanged since it was first put out 30 years ago). The general idea is that the sound on the SHM-CD is more defined as they play - they seem to extract more nuances from the transfer - and of the 10 or so that I own - I've found this to be true.

The 5" mini repro packaging here apes the May 1975 USA vinyl release on Warner Brothers BS 2866 (it was K 56137 in the UK) with its single card sleeve (lyrics and recording details on the rear). The outer resealable bag it has to be said is very flimsy, so extracting and replacing the sleeve has to be done carefully lest you rip it. The 12-page plain white booklet is very ho-hum too - just the lyrics and an essay in Japanese that you can't read.

Been waiting for this album for a while well worth the wait. Brilliant songs. Roseanne Cash recommended it in her Biography.
