This review is from: Songbook, Volume I (MP3 Download)
Essentially an unplugged recording....it is a fantastic body of work here made even better through simplicity. A very stripped down approach but beautifully done and his voice just seems to get better and better. As for the playing...well it's not just the notes, it's the spaces he leaves and the touch is just beautiful. Some really fine song writing here with some real bite. There is some really tender material here and others that still make me wince after many, many listenings. "That's why I love mankind" and "Rednecks" spring to mind. ....
It just sounds he is right in front of you - a very "live" sound in terms of immediacy and warmth.. Do not pass this album by just because you have earlier versions. This is a fantastic album. Get the headphones out !
