outstanding album for a relaxing sunday. Even if you cant overlook the lyrics in whiteline fever or the shock of a sailor discovering his mother was a prostitute, Casablanca and Key Largo will make it all worthwhile. An album that makes you think of the Keys, Cuba, gun running and drug smugglers.What an adventure!!!!!! All from a deckchair in rainy blighty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic - and here are some thoughts 20 Oct 2007
By Friendlycard VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a marvellous album from the early 1980s which briefly made Bertie Higgins an overnight star - rightly, too, as this is a great collection of beautifully-performed classics with a pirate/Carribbean/Bogart twist running throughout. Composition, vocals, muscianship and production are all on the top line. Bertie Higgins' vocals always combine the melodious with the gutsy - he's a truly great singer.

Whilst the hits - such as 'Key Largo' - are understandably the best known tracks on the album, there is some great stuff amongst the lesser-known songs - a particular stand-out here is the long finale, 'The Tropics', a really gutsy rock song which is straight AOR. A brilliant album.

A couple of other thoughts. First, anyone considering buying this excellent album might instead consider 'Golden Classics' - essentially, it's this album plus two very good additional tracks ('Tokyo Joe' and 'Beneath the Island Light'). These are taken from the follow-up album 'Pirates & Poets'. Though necessarily overshadowed by Higgins' almost impossible-to-follow debut, 'Pirates & Poets' is in fact extremely good.

A second point is that, contrary to what I've read elsewhere, I now understand that 'Pirates & Poets' IS currently available on CD, albeit very hard to track down.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the Cassette that I love the BEST! 14 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It took me 18 years to find these songs again and it was worth the wait. Even though I forgot the artist name Bertie Higgins. I never forgot two songs on this cassette "Just another day in Paradise" and "Key Largo". My kids have grown up with these words on my lips. And their question was what are you talking about and I would say they are the words to some old songs that I heard a long time ago, that are magic to me, in this hectic world we now live in. Now finally I will be able to share my love of these songs with my children. These songs have lifted my spirit and soul when nothing else could. Thanks Bertie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paradise 18 Mar 2000
By Olivia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I remember the first time I heard Bertie, I was a lot younger than many of his fans. However the island music touched me. I am now married and I used it at my wedding. It's good to know there is still a place for Bertie...even on the net.

4.0 out of 5 stars laid back, familiar, comfortable island music 19 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Always loved this album, emailed Bertie,as my old tape wore out - he told me I could find it here - and I'll be happy again. Nothing like a bit of Keys Music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnetic and beautiful! 8 Jun 1999
By Wes Shrader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Bertie Higgins possesses a unique talent of blending his melodies and enter-twining them into some singular lyrics. When one listens to Casablanca, a beautiful love story is opened and one cannot help but reflect on the movie by the same name that starred the enigmatic Bogie. Bertie successfully repeats his arresting talents over and over throughout his album. Hats off to a great performer! Well-worth the listening!
