Paul Weller - That Dangerous Age (Video)

Biography

Modern Classics; the title said it all, really. A little tongue in cheek, perhaps, but he had a point. In just eight years as a solo artist, Paul Weller had created a body of work that not only matched the very best of his previous groups’ output, but also put him toe to toe – and frequently head and shoulders above – the crop of new bands claiming him as a hero. He’d ... Read more in Amazon's Paul Weller Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Feed your soul 15 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This excellent series rarely disappoints, and Paul Weller's current volume is perhaps the best yet.
I'm sure many would expect a mix tape full of Small Faces tracks and Motown stompers from the Weller stable, but it's the more subtle, soulful side of the mans muse we have here. Thus you get a blend of hip-hop (Funkdoobiest), 70's funk (Headhunters), rocksteady (John Holt), bizarre speaking-in-tongues modern Jazz (Charles Mingus) and a fabulous slice of 60's chamber pop (the casuals).
If you're a fan of PW's adventurous 'lost weekend' years (from the last few style council albums to the first solo LP) you'll find this CD a real ear-opener.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspired 26 July 2005
By B Moraes VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
What an absolutely inspired collection this is. These are the choices of a man in love with music, and unconcerned with fashion. Weller's sleeve notes are excellent too, covering the reasons for the music he's chosen and generous about their influence on him as well name checking the friends who have introduced him to particular tunes. Not only is he stylish on the outside but between the ears too.

5.0 out of 5 stars expand your musical genre with the modfather 23 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
I just fail to see how you can't get off on some of these tracks.I have picked up so much new/old music from the genius that is Paul Weller....check out wild beasts and erland & the carnival.This collection has some off centre gems such as 'God made me funky' a record that a fan drew his attention to,'devils pie' and the wonderful John Holts Ali Baba.Then there's the very uplifting 'Color him father' which tells a lovely story and blends nicely into a perfect 60's tune;Jesamine by the casuals.
Even the tracks by established artists are not mainstream and I hadn't heard Marvin's Pretty Little Baby and the kinks big black smoke let alone the lovely version of curtis mayfields 'we must be in love'before...what pleassnt finds they are.Handouts in the rain by Richie Havens makes you want to check his back catalogue

If you love music i guarantee you'll get off on at least two thirds of this collection...thank you Mr Weller

3.0 out of 5 stars Influential 20 Jan 2004
By "grtd"
Format:Audio CD
As a follower of PW for over 20 years the CD contained a number of influences that came as a bit of a surprise - some great, a couple not quite to my taste . A good number of gems on here though that I would not have come across otherwise - catch Richie Havens, the Blind Boys of Alabama and John Coltrane for starters.
Will definitely continue to play - loud!
