4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome release on CD, 11 Nov. 2001
This review is from: That certain thing (Audio CD)
The 1987 album 'That Certain Thing' is more pop-rock orientated than Snowy White's more recent blues-based output, but is a highly enjoyable and rather different insight into the work of one of Britain's greatest guitarist/singer/songwriters. Though very song-driven, the guitar work is as good as ever, and 'I'll be holding on' is a track that will have you reaching for the 'repeat' button.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential in any rock/blues collection, 11 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Pure Gold (Audio CD)
Snowy White deserves pride of place in any guitar-based rock/blues enthusiast's collection. As a guitarist, Snowy ranks with, or even ahead of, Clapton, Green and Knopfler yet, and despite stints with Thin Lizy and Pink Floyd, he never seems to have gained appropriate recognition.PURE GOLD is a good introduction to his solo material, ranging from the hit single 'Bird of Paradise' to the awesome, more recent 'In the Name of the Lord'. This collection emphasises the blues dimension in Snowy's music, necessarily understating the rock side. If you love PURE GOLD, you should try HIGHWAY TO THE SUN (more rock-orientated) or THAT CERTAIN THING (more pop-leaning). As well as a great guitarist, Snowy is a superb lead singer and composer. One last thing - Snowy White's music is so complex, professional and atmospheric that, to be appreciated in full, it needs to be heard on the best possible hi fi.
