Biography

Singer/songwriter Gilbert O'Sullivan successfully combined a flair for Beatlesque popcraft with an old-fashioned music hall sensibility to emerge as one of the most distinctive and popular new performers of the early 1970s. Born Raymond O'Sullivan in Waterford, Ireland on December 1, 1946, he went on to attend art school in Swindon, England, writing songs throughout his formative years ...

Product Description

The first album to be produced by Gilbert himself and featuring the usual wide variety of high class original O Sullivan compositions, Southpaw (1977) is the sound of an artist really enjoying the process of running things in the studio as he inspired superb performances from all concerned; including guitarist Chris Spedding, keyboard player Tony Hymas and the Mike Sammes Singers. Nine bonus non-album singles and b-sides are included. The magnificent cover was produced by Bob Hook, occasional blues pianist on Gilbert s sessions and the only one of Gilbert s art-school friends who made it as a professional artist. Absolutely gorgeous, a classic cover. That s Bob s own hand on the sleeve," says Gilbert.

Format: Audio CD
This is the 5th album O'Sullivan released in the 70s. His wells of inspiration didn't seem to dry up even after writing so many highly original and unforgettable songs. This album starts with the characteristic intro song followed by 'You got me going', and 'Tomorrow Today' immediately made an impression on me by the striking freshness of a new kind of lyricism, quite different from the songs in the previous albums. 'I remember once','That's where I belong', and 'My love and I' share the same nostalgic yearning. Another memorable song 'Miss my love today' with the hauntingly atmospheric electric piano accompaniment confirms that Gilbert O'Sullivan has pushed a boundary of his artistry further into a new realm.

Format: Audio CD
Southpaw was released in 1977, with music in Britain undergoing some radical changes and Gilbert's popularity fading from the heights achieved in the early 70's. However, this album is packed full of fabulous melodies, great hooks, touching lyrics and infectuous musicianship and it is a mystery why it didn't yield several hit singles and put Mr O'Sullivan firmly back in the public eye.

Both sides (in the old days, kids, the music was divided between each side of the disc and you had to turn it over!) start with a short and catchy intro, as was Gilbert's habit, and the first track proper is one of Gilbert's hardest rockers, You Got Me Going. This is followed by a pair of excellent wistful songs, No Telling Why (unusually sung from the point of view of a man who has stolen another man's wife) and Tomorrow Today, returns to rock with The Best Fun I Ever Had, and ends with a strange but haunting "social commentary" song I Remember Once. Rock also kicks off side 2 with I Of Course Replied, and is followed by a pair of truly classic songs, up there with the best - That's Where I Belong and My Love And I (which delivers one of my favourite lyrics "Whatever happened to our world, where making love meant holding hands"). The set switches back to upbeat rock with If I Can't Have You All To Myself, and ends with the organ-driven song Miss My Love Today, which was chosen as the single.

If you only know Gilbert O'Sullivan from his numerous "Greatest Hits" packages you would be very pleasantly surprised if you listened to some of his albums, as there's a wealth of hidden classics. Just as the Beatles "1" can in no way tell the story of the greatest band in history, so "The Berry Vest" and its ilk cannot truly convey Gilbert's songcraft. He has continued to record and release some excellent music since his heyday in the 70's and retains a very loyal and devoted fanbase - you will understand why if you give this album a chance!
