One Man and a Guitar - Simply Stunning
on 8 January 2002
I first heard this album in 1983 on vinyl (it's lyrics were pertinient to my situation at the time)and fell in love with it. 18 years on, and rediscovered on CD, the music is still as refreshing as it was then. Watt, a superb lyricist by any standard, pours his heart out on this album, it's melancholy feel hiding the catchyness of some of the tunes. Others, more simple, all get the Ben Watt sound, simple haunting tunes tinged with a little sadness. If you enjoyed "The Night I Heard Carusso Sing" from Everything but the Girl's "Idlewild", then this album is definitely for you! 5 additional tracks too - simply a hidden gem!!
