5.0 out of 5 stars I`d Never Heard Of Him Either!!!, 6 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Ten Short Songs About Love (Audio CD)
Being the wrong side of 35,
Im currently in the process,(& I know that I`m not alone!) of replacing all my old vinyl album collection with it`s newer, CD format. I had resigned myself to the fact, that some of the rarer,& more obscure albums & artists in my collection,would not be deemed worthy of a reissue by their record company & never reappear "Digitally Re-Mastered" for me to snap up, even CD`s that were not big sellers on release,were often quickly deleted,& just plain "Unavailable" up until recently.
Thankfully all that is rapidly changing & Lost in the many albums that are re-released & within our grasp once again, is this absolute gem, from Gary Clarke.
For the unititiated Gary was the singer/songwriter for the band "Meet Danny Wilson" Still no wiser?! their only real hit was "Marys Prayer" which was a good little pop single, & still gets a bit of airplay here & there, but as a band, they failed to set the world alight & in 1993 Gary went solo,& recorded "Ten Short Songs About Love" in a recording studio in his bedroom!!.
The album is a classic,"We sail on the stormy waters" is a massive tune with a great singalong pop chorus, just as "Freefloating" showcases another potentially great pop single, but with lovely production & a jazzy tip.
"Nancy" is a more "folky", driving acoustic song, that is again, instantly appealing & illustrates Gary Clarkes obvious talent & versatility.
The rest of the songs are also,all well worth the listen,
This is not simply a collection of individual,unconnected tunes,
They each play their part in making up what is a fine album.
It`s a mature,well rounded release & at the end of the last track you just cannot help but like the guy!!
