First released in 1970 and now remastered "Nicely out of Tune" is still the strongest release from the fab five. Classics such as Lady Eleanor, Clear White Light, We can swing Together and Winter Song (described by Elvis Costello as the greatest song ever written) are scattered throughout the album the remaining track are by no means fillers as a number of the other tracks could have just as easily been released as singles at the time. There is not a weak track on the album, the harmonies are wonderful and the acoustic guitar haunting on such tracks as Winter song and Lady Eleanor. Knacker Yard Blues and Nothing but the marvellous also appear (they were originally the b-sides of Clear White Light and Lady Eleanor respectively and didn't appear on the album on its original release) as an added bonus to complete a wonderful trip back in time. The only fault is with 'Down' which originally had a lovely crackly scratchy intro which someone in their wisdom has cleaned up and take away the charm from that track but I think we can forgive the engineer that one. Although almost 35 years old Nicely out of Tune still sounds fresh and original and is a must for any fan of good music and a great way to discover Lindisfarne again.

This is a true classic and in many people's opinion(and mine) the best they did, I think "Dingly Dell" &" Fog on the Tyne" come close they have great songs, this is a great album, a definate case of getting it dead right the first time. It's got the lot, lively and ireverent with the likes of "we can swing together" to the melodic thoughtful "Alan in the river with flowers", and perhaps in "Winter Song" one of the best songs the late and much lamented Alan Hull ever wrote. This is truly a great song, listen to the words and think how something written over 40 years ago is still so meaningfull today. All this and a smattering of classics from Rod Clements as well.

It's very very good, unusually you even get bonus tracks on the CD version that are worth having rather than put there to fill up the space.

Try it you might just like it

Nicely , is an old album that I turn to when my rock collection does`nt quite fit the bill. my first Lindisfarne album `fog on the tyne` comes out now and again but since I got `Nicely` remastered it is perfect to listen to or even dare I say to have tinkling away in the back ground you cant go wrong if its in your collection. who are they like? hard to slot into any category folk rock geordie style. Alan Hull`s a English Dylan/Neil Young type writer.

HEXHAM NORTHUMBERLAND SOME TIME IN THE 1990S, ROOTING THROUGH THE OXFAM 50P RECORD BOX FOUND THIS ON A CHARITY SHOP LUCKY DIP BASIS, AND FOR ME THE GOOD LORD PROVIDED MY ALBUM. I ONLY NEW LADY ELEANOR, AND THAT WAS LOVED IN SECRET FOR MY RECORD BUYING ERA IS POST 77,AND ALL THE ANGRY PEOPLE WOULD NEVER LISTEN TO THAT!(OH WHAT A GREAT LEGACY THEY LEFT).EACH TRACK IS SPECIAL (3)= GOOSEBUMP FACTOR 50! 1. ALAN IN THE RIVER WITH FLOWERS 2.THE THINGS I SHOULD OF SAID 3.NOTHING BUT THE MARVELLOUS IS BEAUTIFUL (ONE OF 2 BONUS TRACKS, I HAVE NOT ENJOYED BEFORE ITS AMAZING).THE OTHER KNACKERS YARD BLUES (BY ROD CLEMENTS) IS VERY LIKE LENNON OF THE PERIOD, AND THE LEGEND ALAN HULL SEEMED TO SWIM IN HIS WATER ON A FEW OF HIS SOLO SONGS.I UNDERSTAND SOME OTHER REVIEWS ARE A BIT DOWN ON NICELY OUT OF TUNE, AND MY PASSION FOR IT LIKE MANY THINGS IS A BIT SKEWED, BUT FOR ME NO OTHER ALBUM DOES WHAT THIS DOES TO ME! PLEASE GIVE IT A GO THROUGH AMAZON UK.
