5.0 out of 5 stars original, light easy jazzy classics, 1 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Sleeping Gypsy (Audio CD)
Michael Franks is a songwriter of rare talent, who produces music of great originality and deceptive simplicity. Great songs like "The Lady Wants To Know" wash down like a cafe latte taken late at night. For any fan of jazz, country rock or easy listening music, Michael Franks scores on all counts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as I remembered !!!, 19 April 2011

This review is from: Sleeping Gypsy (Audio CD)
Had this album on vinyl when it was first released, as well as most of his other earlier stuff. Was a big fan back then. The Lps got lost along the way of my life, but I have just now started to collect some of Michael Franks earlier works on CD. The charm of his lyrics, and his easy vocal style have stood the test of time for me.

Anyone who is familiar with his earlier, (less cluttered) sound will enjoy this album. Not that I'm putting down later stuff, like "the camera nevr lies", etc. Albums from that era had the who's who of session players on board, and were very sophisticated. I personally favoured the earlier things, "art of tea", etc, which featured the "Crusaders" doing most of the backing tracks.

A very nice Disc typical of this Musicians work. One has however to be appreciative of this genre of music which, regrettably I believe, will not result in phenominal sales
