Fans of 'The Bible' will be interested to know that Boo Hewerdine has co-written 4 songs for this set. Fellow Danny Wilson compatriots Kit Clark and Ged Grimes are also involved in a small way.
There are 14 songs here including the 'hidden' track 'My Last Cigarette' which should have been called 'My Last Song' as I have not found any new Gary Clark material since! If anyone reading this knows any different then please let me know. 'Tragedy Girl' a good foot stomper wets the appetite to what comes next 'The Dumbest Story' which has all the classic Gary Clark trademarks, an infectious melody and a chorus to die for, a song about teenage love that goes hideously wrong. 'Tom Driver' is the first Hewerdine collaboration along with band members Eric Pressly and Neil MacColl. 'Greedy' is one of my personal favourites of 1995, co-written with Boo it has Gary playing some brilliant guitar in amongst a very atmospheric backdrop.
The rest of the album is as you would expect from Gary Clark as he has also produced the entire project. King L should have received more airplay at the time, the 2 singles that were released 'Life After You' and 'First Man On The Sun' were great melodic tunes that would have been destined for the top twenty if only supported by national radio stations. The only thing I would change is promote the fantastic B-side 'Dreamdays' to be included here and relegate the weakest song 'Don't Believe In Hollywood' to B-side status!!
Buy this album and try and get hold of the 2 single releases, as there are more songs available from arguably one the best songwriters to come out of the 80's.
And I think "Don't Believe in Hollywood" is a wonderful tune: bouncy, almost perky music, behind tragic "what happened to my dreams?" lyrics - "Don't believe in anywhere where the sky is always blue . . . "
The world needs more of this
Simply stunning tracks
Gary Clark is a LA based producer now but what a loss to us
I am sure this album has a cult following and sometimes it's best to keep these gems quiet
I have passed it to a few who rate it very highly
'If thats being greedy....that's what I am'
Great lyrics, great tunes. Danny Wilson taken to a different level.
I don't think there is a track that I don't like.
"Greedy" deserves recognition though. It's one of those tracks which should last 10 minutes but sadly doesn't.

I remembered the song off this album, "the First Man on the Sun" and, after a search, found a copy on the Amazon Marketplace that wasn't a silly price. Read morePublished on 27 Jan. 2014 by Bill P
A bargain price for reasonably rare recording. I am well pleased with it -especially as it was hard to pick up at such a bargain price.Published on 22 April 2013 by andrew gallacher
I only heard of this album because Bob Harris played a couple of tracks on R2, and I wanted to see if the rest was as good. It is.Published on 24 Nov. 2011 by Wilf
