This is the last release from the late, great Jackie Lomax. Released posthumously, it is a collection of relaxed, laid-back blue-eyed soul from this old soldier of rock. No, it doesn't break any new ground. It is, however, a very satisfying collection of the sort of music that Mr. Lomax excelled in through his career. Rest in peace, Jackie; you deserved far more success than ever came your way.

It is mystifying why some people never quite make the big time - Jackie comes under that banner.

As far as I can see, Lomax was an Englishman who adopted America as his home,embracing a cowboy look and lifestyle to match.

What grabs me first and foremost is his voice - Jackie sounds good despite his advancing years. His voice is very likeable and a pleasure to listen to.

The song writing and lyrics are relaxed, intelligent and easy going, putting me in mind of the late JJ Cale.

I doubt that this album will be a big seller or a smash hit, but I have played it at least a dozen times since it arrived and I have yet to grow tired of it.

A fitting finale and a loss of a lovely talent.

JACKIE LOMAX'S Against All Odds sonic sphere,brings a vocal charisma that swings between familiar styles and rhythms:MARVIN GAYE,AL GREEN,NEIL DIAMOND...an album totally rich enough to sit around and listen to: The Little Things of Love,Easier to Give In,She Don't Belong To Me,Destiny...The whole thing conjures up fond memories and flavors of the stellar 70's and he sure accomplishes his job. LOMAX,surrounds himself with quality musicians and he knows how to construct his artistic unimagined possibilities,achieved them all with fruition.The final fact is that it feels timeless bringing memory bliss with mercurial passion.Nostalgia with attitude and sensibility,signed and sealed. A tribute for himself.
