Remembered best for his chilling cover of the anti-war epic "Come Away Melinda", the story goes that this late, talented American singer-songwriter's return to his future adopted home was spurred on by fan and believer, producer Pierre Tubbs. Rose sounds pretty much as he should on these sessions. Drugs and alcohol had taken their toll and the deep voice is tarred by strong French cigarettes, yet he shoulders the workload and delivers a set that crosses some meaty covers of perennials ("The Rose", "Over The Rainbow") with new interpretations of old songs (including his "Hey Joe" picked up by Jimi Hendrix) and newcomers. The performance is true to the seminal recordings that made his name in the late 60s and early 70s. Previously unreleased "Lady's Coming Home For Christmas" reveals his black humour and bonus tracks in two little-heard live originals measure the value of the revitalised Rose of the 1990s, who - cleaned-up and writing again - would perform with Robert Plant and Nick Cave amongst other major artists influenced by his work. A revealing dip into the story of a wayward soul, who made it back.
