Paul Brady can be forgiven the dry complaint of this anthology's title: his long arc through Irish folk and rock has made fans of Mark Knopfler, Bonnie Raitt, Tina Turner, and Bob Dylan, while Brady's songs and fleet guitar have popped up on an impressive array of albums. Despite that pedigree, and Brady's distinctively reedy, supple tenor, his own albums have remained woefully underexposed, making Nobody Knows a revelation for newcomers. The set mirrors Brady's path from traditional Irish folk music in the 1970s through forceful and impassioned folk-rock to a softer mainstream pop style in the '80s. His folk craft surfaces here in two beautifully realised new recordings--"The Lakes of Pontchartrain" and "Arthur McBride". The more orchestral sweep of Brady's pop-slanted work shines on the title track, "Trick or Treat" (featuring Raitt), and "Not the Only One", which typify his elegant, mature romanticism. Ultimately, though, his most galvanic performance--and haunting lyric--erupts with "Nothing but the Same Old Story" from 1981's brilliant Hard Station, chronicling the archetypal immigrant experience of an Irish wanderer whose dreams of fortune and freedom are crushed by alcoholism, poverty, and prejudice. The song attains a perfect balance between its kinetic rock arrangement, rich narrative detail, and Brady's desperate, angry, sorrowful voice. --Sam Sutherland
