Format: Audio CD
This album was released in 1973 following the amazingly original albums 'Back To Front' and 'Himself' released in 1972 and 1971. It seems the 70s are O'Sullivan's vintage era and it is astonishing he could keep writing so many songs of highest quality and originality. Like the previous album, this one includes, not only hit songs like 'Get Down' and 'Ooh Baby', but also heart-warming and memorable songs like 'Where peaceful waters fllow', 'Afriend of mine' and 'They've only themselves to blame'. One of the characteristics of this album is the unabashed sense of humour and striking melodies which go very well with the witty lyrics in the songs like 'I'm a writer not a fighter', 'Who knows perhaps maybe' and 'If you love me like you love me'. This is certainly one of the best albums by O'Sullivan.

even the 3+1 bonus b sides are very good and the rest of this album is brill'.

originally on vinyl and cassette in 1973 when you got a proper slab of vinyl in those days and not a large thin black communion wafer. (i am not kidding you!).

sound quality is immaculate : warm and crisp at the top end.

G O'S's very best o/s album ie his Sgt Pepper album. perfect pop music before Thin Lizzy and U2 etc.

compulsory purchase to everyone outside of Oireland, beggorah.!

if he recorded 14 cuts in that session why the blazes didnt ho go on and make it a double album of 20 sounds.? its a mystery. silly boy.!

if G-O'S is actually reading this utter drivel then he should re-tour this album again sometime soon. its that good.

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2012 REMASTERED REISSUE ***

"I'm A Writer, Not A Fighter" is the 3rd release in a full-on reissue campaign by Salvo Records of the UK for Irish singer-songwriter Raymond Gilbert O'Sullivan. His UK debut album "Himself" from 1971 was relaunched in November 2011 and his second LP "Back To Front" from 1972 in February 2012 (both are reviewed separately). With fantastic new sound, four bonus tracks, quality packaging and a none-too steep price - legions of his fans worldwide will be thrilled to see that his MAM Records catalogue is finally receiving a thorough going-over (and like the others - this release is artist-approved too).

Here are the finite details - UK released Monday 2 April 2012 (10 April 2012 in the USA) Salvo SALVOXCD003 breaks down as follows (44:34 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 10 are his third studio album "I'm A Writer, Not A Fighter" - released September 1973 in the UK on Mam Records MAM-SS 505 and October 1973 on Mam Records MAM 7 in the USA. It peaked at 101 on the album charts in America - but reached Number 2 in England.

Track 11 is "A Very Extraordinary Sort Of Girl" - the non-album B-side of "Get Down" - a 7" single released March 1973 in the UK on Mam Records MAM 96 (it reached Number 1 on the UK singles chart and Number 7 in the USA). .

Track 12 is "Good Company" - the non-album B-side of "Ooh Baby" - the second single lifted off the album. "Ooh Baby" was issued September 1973 in the UK on Mam Records MAM 107 and charted at Number 18. "Good Company" is considered by fans to be one of Gilbert's best B-sides - and like Track 11 it's the first time this rare song has been made available for all markets since a rare Japanese CD compilation in 2004.

Although I bear the same surname as Gilbert O'Sullivan I am not related
I believe this album to be his 'Beatles Revolver/Sgt Pepper'
Every track is as good as one would expect or be surprised with
Why on earth his music is not so easily available I just don't understand
This album gets a regular play
This is a definate 5 star piece of well crafted music
