Product description

Product Description

"The Slow Train" is Phil Jeays's 2nd Irregular Release. Phil is very much a cult figure, a songwriter's songwriter who magnificently refuses to be pigeonholed, whose work combines seamlessly the energy of punk rock, the directness of acoustic folk, with the complexity, wit & intelligence of the european chanson tradition. Phil is also a very fine singer, & is in very good voice on this album, which contains some of his strongest songs to date. The title track alone is a breathtaking bravura display of everything that makes Philip Jeays essential listening - it has the scope, length & poetry of Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" only delivered with Johnny Rotten's venom & Jacques Brel's dramatic authority. The same ambition, expressed with much wit & robust language, is again present on "This is the Age of the Naked Emperors" - & then there are the songs of love & regret at which Phil also excels - & who else but Phil Jeays would entitle such a song "Mavis"!
