The Very Best of Gilbert O'Sullivan - A Singer & His Songs
This is a wonderful collection and PLEASE give this a chance by giving an un-biased listening without subconsciously dismissing this because it is so un-cool to like Gilbert.
I consider myself a cool enough dude in his early 50's with a massive music collection of up to date music and claasics from the 60's though the decades to the present. I heard ' Alone Again' on the radio a few years back and it was so inspiring that , despite myself, I bought the 'Bery Very' Album and was transfixed by the lyrics and melodies.Gilbertville got good reviews and I bought it out of curiosity and REALLY enjoyed it and played it continually in the car..the stories are just great.
So much so ,in fact, that my wife and I are going to see Gilbert at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in April...can't wait!!
This is another excellent compilation and get some good headphones on, lie back and immerse yourself in this...you know you are worth it, even if you think you might not be!!!
I guarantee you will LOVE this album
