Biography

Andy was born in 1948 in Cardiff, South Wales and first enjoyed fame in the 1960’s as the front man and guitarist for chart topping band Amen Corner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new convert 24 Aug 2006
By Nick.E
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd as a speculative buy. I do not normally send in reviews but saw the review option when revisiting Amazon looking for other AFL material. Seen AFL with Eric Clapton but not heard much of his own material. Played the cd as soon as it arrived from Amazon - first play, interesting, second play, very interesting! Now I can`t stop playing what is an UNBELIEVABLE collection of superb songs! Magnificent guitar work, vocals and lyrics. I rarely find an album which has so many strong tracks. The opening track (One more rocket) is the tightest rock n`roll performance you can get. The musical feel changes as you are drawn through a series of magnificently performed songs which are bluesy, jazzy ,spiritual. Favourite tracks (at the moment) are Hymn for my Soul, Low rider , Unbroken Love (WOW!) , I Don`t Need (brilliant guitar work!), also starting to like the title track a lot. The whole album grabs me more each time I play it. This could be my album of 2006. I still love Clapton but AFL is really showing him the way here . Pure class!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bop 'til you drop 3 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought 'La Booga Rooga' back in the 70s and loved it. Of course, Andy was no stranger to the spotlight even then but boy did he have what it takes to do something magical with a tune and some words. So with this in mind, I bought 'Sweet Soulful Music'. Wow! 30 years on, older and wiser he may be but the songs on this new CD are simply divine. Moving on from the funk-edge that was 'Rooga', I'd say 'Soulful' is more rootsy, vaguely Cooder-esque. But Andy's definitely his own man here. Can't wait to hear these songs live when Andy goes on tour in the UK [October / November 2006]. Enjoy!

What a fantastic CD. I haven't stopped listening to it. My favourites are Low Rider and Ashes and Diamonds but there are so many brilliant tracks. My 9 year old son likes Sweet Soulful Music - something there for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Fairweather-High 27 Sep 2006
By Stephen Wright VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Now this is a really nice album. I have to say that I was more than a little apprehensive when I heard that Andy Fairweather-Low was putting out his first new album in over 25 years, in fact since 1980's 'Mega Shebang', especially since 'Wide Eyed And Legless : The A&M Recordings' bought back so many memories and reminded me just how good he was as a solo artist back then. From his earliest times with Amen Corner in the 60's and the brief stint as 'Fairweather' in the early 70's, this guy has always come up with the goods, and I must say that this album doesn't let the side down one bit.

'Sweet Soulful Music' may not truly sum up the album, since you only have to listen to the album opener 'One More Rocket', a real rock 'n' roller which reminds me more than a little of 'Subterranean Homesick Blues'. Ironically enough, the only other real uptempo track is 'Sweet Soulful Music' itself, another pounding 2-beat rocker. For me though, one of the nicest things about this album is that you can listen to almost any song, and it has echoes of material from previous albums.

Some cynics might take this to mean that Andy Fairweather Low hasn't 'progressed', hasn't 'moved with the times', but how many times have you bought a new album from a favourite artist, only to find that they've completely changed direction, they've lost you, and you hate it!

As corny as this might sound, this album for me almost from the first listen, was like catching up with an old friend or putting on my favourite slippers. The album just felt comfortable, and I am completely OK with that, since you don't want every new album you pick up to be revolutionary and leave you feeling as though you've been hit over the back of the head with a bat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply The Best 22 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
GREAT, FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT, SUPERB, OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD,........ I quite like it! It's been a long time coming, but it has been well worth it! His absolute best. The 'teen idol' from the sixties has come of age! In parts a bit 'Eric Claptonesque' but that's not a bad thing. I can't wait for his concerts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back and not before time! 23 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
As a long time fan of AFL going back to the days of Amen Corner, it was great news to hear of this new CD, his first for 26 years. I am happy to report that this album is far better than I expected with that great voice still as strong as ever and songwriting talent still very much intact. Stand out tracks for me are the title track and the gorgeous bluesey number 'Life is Good' Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars My mate 28 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
I got to know Andy and the rest of Amen Corner when they used to play at the Wickham Hall in Romford on a Saturday night (way back in the 60s). In the break I would sometimes have a drink and a chat with him. I knew they were good then and they were only just making it. It became obvious that they had cracked it when Andy gave me complimentary tickets to see them at The Tiles in Oxford Street. I liked his stuff when he was younger and I have followed his career with interest, even though he generally does session work for other artists including my favourite Eric Clapton. Andy's new album has not let him down it is a gem.......more please mate!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent,the best album ive heard in ages 2 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
I picked this album up awhile ago,noticing Andy's name from playing with Clapton, and i have to say im glad i did. The whole album is surperb easy listening,not technical, just straight up easy listening. Theres not a bad song on the album. It neither sounds like Clapton or Rodger Waters just something quite different.I highly recommend it!
