'NOW' IS OK WITH ME!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This is Now (Audio CD)
I became aware of Clive when he was in Dennis Locorriere's band several years ago. I started buying as much of his work as I could find (and there's a lot out there!).
I think the man is a great songwriter and musician and a pretty good singer as well and I have enjoyed everything I have heard him do, some more than others. This is one of those others.
Don't get me wrong. I agree with everyone who has said that CG is underrated and should be better known, but I don't think this album is the one to accomplish that.
It's musically and vocally solid but I've heard Clive write better lyrics.
If you are familiar with his other albums then this will be a welcomed addition to your collection, including his very early work as writer/frontman for Any Trouble.
But, if you're looking to be convinced or converted I'd start with I Love This Town, Bittersweet, Strange Persuasions (his first solo outing after AT) or his 'Best Of' collection, which includes a good sampling of songs.
Clive will be on tour in the UK soon. An evening with him is recommended.
