HASH(0x981cc420) out of 5 stars A wonderful return to form, plus more... 22 Sept. 2005
By D. S. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Technically, Citysong is simply a single with two songs: Citysong and Holyoke Hotel.

Each of these songs is augmented by movie (!) contained on the CD. Protheroe did these himself, on his Apple, and they're marvelous additions to each tune. Of the songs, Holyoke Hotel is my favorite, but the movie for Citysong is more fun.

But, the second CD in this package includes bonus tracks - SEVENTEEN of them. These are all fun, each in their own way, as bits and pieces of older and newer ideas and some nice nostalgic bits. (Fans of Protheroe's work since the mid-seventies will be surprised to see bits of Lotte's Electrik Opera Film in here, including "Live Wrong Kino Tata.")

Brian Protheroe put out an amazing trio of records in the mid 1970s, then went into acting. This is his first release of really new musical material in all that time, and over the last 3 decades, his fan club has expanded (all over the world) as people are turned on to his music by fans like me. His stuff is intelligent, moving, creative, and funny. It's a shame he's not more popular, but that's how it usually is with really good artists, isn't it?

HASH(0x970c0a20) out of 5 stars The biggest single 13 Aug. 2008
By Noel A. Hodda - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
How many singles are released with two tracks plus a couple of movies made by the artist himself on one disc and seventeen (!) other tracks on a second cd? Not many I guess, but this is Brian Protheroe and it's what you might expect from this eclectic artist. You either get Mr. Protheroe or you don't and the world would be a better place if more people did. Actor, entertainer, singer, songwriter and very English. I can't really see this sort of thing coming from anywhere else. I've been wearing out my old vinyl copies of 'Pinball' and 'I/You' for years now and this double cd is a worthy addition to the canon. By turns pop; silly songs; rock; show tunes; cabaret; vaudeville - it's all good fun and highly recommended to those with the ears and the time to let the melodies and words inveigle their way into your life. Beware though: you'll be springing for the Big Box or at least the greatest hits cd before you know it - once you succumb to the charms of Brian Protheroe there's no going back and nor should there be.

Dec 2013 update: It's been brought to my attention that since I originally posted my review above some years ago things have changed and now the movie component of the discs won't play on certain equipment. I tried on my MacBook Pro tonight and it wouldn't recognise them. Nor did my BluRay player. The Unarchiver wouldn't crack them either. I'm pretty sure I originally watched them on a Windows desktop using Windows Media or RealPlayer (can't remember which) so I'm not sure of the best way to view them now. Thanks to Keith Martin for alerting me to this.
