Great New Martin Belmont CD,
This review is from: The Guest List (Audio CD)
The previous review says it all so I can only add a few comments....
'Waltzing With Sin' is a song only Hank could do justice to in its tortured and agonising brilliance. I think it's one of Hank's best vocals ever.
Dylan's 'Seven Curses' is an epic, emotive song that Reg sings with a passion and clarity common to everything he does. Great singer.
'Time For The Sun To Rise' is Johnny Nicky at his soulful best. His vocal envelops the listener with an all-encompassing warmth.
'Island Of Dreams' has always been one of my favourite songs. Here, Geraint breezes through the old Springfields classic in his own inimitable style. Poignant lyrics but wonderfully uplifting tune.
'Get Rhythm' is probably my favourite track. A slower and funkier version than Martin's usual live version which works well. Great Bobby Valentino fiddle solo.
The album ends with an exquisite 'Beyond The Blue Horizon' showcasing Barbara Marsh's sultry and appealing voice...and Martin's guitars which are to die for. Absolutely beautiful.
The production is crisp and polished. The musicians on it include, to my mind, one of our best bass players, Kevin Foster. There is not a dud track on it and I would strongly recommend you go buy this CD. You won't be disappointed.
