Late to the Proclaimers...But What a Find!,
This review is from: The Best of The Proclaimers (Audio CD)
I admit it...I was aware of the Proclaimers in the late 80s, but dismissed them without a second listen...I won this CD on a local radio station phone in. What can I say? Every now and then you listen to an album, or a series of songs that just make you feel good...better...at one with everything. "The Joyful Kilmarnock Blues" is one such song...absolutely fantastic. Comic Relief 2007 has given them a boost with 500 miles, but they deserve it. Thoughtful lyrics,catchy tunes, and unmistakable voices..my 16 year old son was even impressed with this album. They may have been going for 20 years, but now I can see why. I recommend this album unreservedly as a great way to explore their music. 5 stars and some.
