Format: Audio CD
Although overshadowed by his work as Jack Bruce's lyricist in Cream and the remarkable series of twelve Bruce solo albums from 1969 - 2003, Pete Brown has had a very well respected parallel career producing solo albums since 1969.

Perils of Wisdom is his 8th studio set and follows hot on the heels of 2010s excellent Road of Cobras. This time Brown & Phil Ryan (his solo songwriting partner & former Man keyboard player) have for the first time recorded with their working band Psoulchedelia, which produces a very tightly arranged set. (Strangely the addition of the horn section for this recording reminds you of Jack Bruce's Big Blues Band.)

Another great set of songs about ageing, playing on the road and the recession. No songs about his usual favourite trains, but Motormother takes an interesting slant on the sexuality of cars. They do sound more and more like a Union Jack Steely Dan going for the (substantial) UK grey vote. That is grey in age, but with grey matter between the ears. And very well they do it to, sophisticated rock of the first order for the baby boomers..

Their two excellent 90s albums Ardours of the Lost Rake/Coals to Jerusalem have just been reissued by esoteric.

If this wasn't enough Pete is writing with Jack Bruce again. 70 the new 30 anyone?

The words on this cd reflect the thoughts of a elderly man, set in his ways. The songs nearly all sound the same, too much singing and not enough piano.
