Midge Ure: The Gift,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Gift (Audio CD)
Midge Ure's first solo album, The Gift was first released in 1985. A real mix of Keyboard work and roaring guitars, The Gift shows Midge at his musical roots. Key tracks to look out for are his number one hit "If I Was" alongside other classics such as: "That Certain smile" and "Wastelands". Not so well known is the orchestral extraviganza "The Gift" a song I would dearly love to use as my epitaph! The only fault I can find with The Gift is that it doesn't last long enough! Although the gift may not be everyone's cup of tea it is an absolutely essential buy for anyone who likes 80's music!
