5.0 out of 5 stars A nice surprise!, 22 July 2009
This review is from: A Rare Conundrum (Audio CD)
Back in the late seventies I had the Danish variation of this album called "Poor Mouth". After I sold my LP's ten years later i expected a reissue on CD, but to no avail. Now after more than 30 years, Bert's Charisma albums are finally being reissued. I could not wait to get hold on "LA Turnaround", an album I sincerely missed. I bought the other two Charisma albums of course, and to my supprise I found "A Rare Conundrum" on par with "LA Turnaround". It is a very stripped down affair and reminds me a lot of Berts albums from the sixties. Rod Clements from Lindisfarne is the producer and he also contributes fine bass playing all over the album. The sound is crisp and Berts voice and playing is relaxed and brilliant. There is no need to select the best tunes, since they're all very good. This was the last masterpiece before the release of "When the Circus Comes To Town" some eighteen years later!
