Tyla & Spike, Triumphant Troubadours,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flagrantly, Electrically, Acoustically Yours (Audio CD)
I am a big fan of The Dogs D'Amour and The Quireboys, so it was an obvious choice of purchase when I saw that this cd had been repackaged and re-released. I missed this the first time around, as it was deleted from print before I purchased it, so I had only heard about it through the reviews it received..
Whoever was given the task of reviewing it was certainly not a fan of either Tyla or Spike, because the reviewer gave it a thumbs down.
Well I am here to give it two well deserved thumbs up, it is an amazing album that any fan of either The Dogs D'Amour or The Quireboys needs to have in their collection. Would also suit any fan of good old fashioned rock and roll.
Considering that you get electric and then acoustic versions of the songs, you get to hear altogether different interpretations of the songs on offer, sang with such real emotion.
Starting with the humorous 'Intro, The Making of' story of the making of the album, showing that Tyla is not only a master lyricist, but also a storyteller with a wicked sense of humour and fun. The duo's voices sit side-by-side so well, giving a masterful lesson in vocal talent, over a double disc cd of 24 songs.
The packaging artwork is once again that of the multi-talented Tyla, showing once again that his skill with a plectrum is matched equally by his skill with art pencils or paint brush.
I shall wait with crossed fingers for a second helping from Tyla and Spike, it will be well received in my collection.
