Son of Anastasia,
This review is from: Son Of Anastasia (Audio CD)
Jimmy's debut is a delightful acoustic pop-folk sensation. Just check out his moving song "Mother's Boy " ! Everyone will have a favourite. I like " Dear Marge", a clever homage to the famous Agony Aunt, and " Lyanna", a touching song about a prostitute. He has even got his own Beatlesque song " Lovely Elisa Cope is Dead". " Bright Side of the Hill" is his own lyrical poetry, whereas "Adrian Henri's Party Night" is his observation on Liverpool's Poetry milieu itself.
The recognised classics are featured " Another Vincent Van Gogh" and " Michelangelo", from this previous incarnation 23rd Turnoff. Jimmy's sense of humour on the uncertain quest for fame is perfectly illustrated with "Tremendous Commercial Potential" A very strong singer songwriter effort issued in 1969. Also the best Album to begin your recommended collection. The CD includes the bonus " Frankie Joe" a B side single from 1970. A big thanks goes to Esoteric Recordings for this timely homage.
