4.0 out of 5 stars 'a magic wand to wave...', 12 Jun 2002
By 
This review is from: Birthday Blues (Audio CD)
This album, like several of bert's, is uneven, seemingly un-themed or without even a consistant mood or constant style to tie its disparate pieces together. That said, the notion that albums must all be concept pieces is a mistaken one, and what we have here is an excellent innovator & skilled interpretor presenting us with a cluster of diverse, highly imaginative songs in 'folk, blues & beyond', with a voice & guitar style that are uniquely personal; dissonances & harmonies of unexpected shapes emerge continuously through both. He is joined by excellent, complementary musicians (often absent from his later releases) who are allowed themselves to contribute to oblique, open-ended mini-masterpieces such as 'a woman like you' & 'i am lonely'. For the artist's individuality & the way in which he passes through uncharted musical realms with both emotional vigour & casual whimsy, this album belongs to the the special family of innovative albums created in the late sixties
