I saw this wonderful act in Dublin 1986 supporting the Housemartins. They were as good as any live act I have ever seen since. They believed so much in their own unique sound and they certainly surprised 4,000 Housemartin fanatics. On this album are the main highlights from that very memorable cold October night. 'Misty Blue" is a beautiful, slow love song. "Letter from America" (folk and band version) needs no introduction at this stage...possibly the most poignant tribute to emigration you'll ever hear. "The first attack" is fantastic; the acoustic chords coupled with affecting harmonies.... You'll find yourself singing along, so infectious is it.
My favourite track is "Sky takes the Soul"....if ever a song made you want to take up playing the guitar this is it...a fast song with raw but wonderful lyrics ("it could be tomorrow it could be today when the sky takes the soul, the earth takes the clay") and, yes, those harmonies again..
"The joyful Kilmarnock Blues" even introduces a simple but very effective way of grabbing your attention ...a fast clapping sound...
The band scores well for this album - 4 stars for their honesty, their harmonies, their feel-good music and their inventiveness.

.... since the late 80's, i always had The Proclaimers down as "the scottish blokes with glasses who sung 'letter from America" and basically that was it. A few years ago i seen this album in a sale and decided to get it for a joke. I was blown away completely. I had bought it to sing along to 'letter to america' for a laugh, but when i played it, realised i had missed out on,no joking, probably one of the top 20 albums easily of all time. Leave whatever predudices you have about these two at the door, they are a classic band and this album isn't a one off - the next 4 albums after this are just as good....

What can be said about the Reid brothers that hasn't already been said?

Just have a listen to this album and you will find a number of things to be true, firstly - these guys REALLY MEAN IT! next up, there is no 80's style over production to get in the way of these songs. Finally no other band can have you smiling and laughing at one moment to be crying the next, only to repeat the whole exercise over and over throughout the whole album!

Just buy it!

iam biased as i really like the proclaimers so almost any album would suit me. it is a good price on amazon and has some songs that are new to me and some old classics, letter from america which has huge sentimental significance to me. taste in music is hard to rate but i love it.

WHAT CAN I SAY - IT'S THE PROCLAIMERS AND I WAS NEVER GOING TO BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THEIR PRODUCT. I LOOK FORWARD TO MANY MORE CD'S FROM THEM BUT THIS ONE WAS SENSATIONAL

Passion, harmonies, proud Scottish accents with a pared back guitar production and heartfelt, poetic lyrics. Nothing else quite like this 1st album of theirs.

The first album from the proclaimers and their finest in my opinion. It set the standard of things to come and they have gone from strenth to strenth.
