Brinsley who? Crosby,Stills,Nash/America/Eagles,
By A Customer
This review is from: Brinsley Schwarz / Despite It All (Audio CD)
Mention the name Brinsley Schwarz and few will remember much, if anything , about this band who never quite made it big back in the seventies.
Those who know Nick Lowe of performing and producing fame - "Cruel to be Kind", Dave Edmunds Rockpile, The Pretenders etc should discard any predjudices and listen to 'Brinsley Schwarz' - the first LP of this compilation.
The style is very much like Crosby,Stills, Nash , the Eagles and America in the acoustic guitar /soft rock sound and close vocal harmonies.
Perhaps too anodyne for some, none of the songs really have that much edge apart from Lowe's solo "Rock and Roll Women" , but the album certainly evokes all the nostalgia for that folk/rock/acoustic thing that the Eagles and co did so well.

Some people do not know the difference between writing to r&r format . And when someone has somthing to give up.
They should have called it a day after this LP, it could not be bettered.
