Format: Audio CD
Gary Clark's first solo album since the demise of Danny Wilson revealed more of the short, bitter-sweet songwriting exemplified by tracks like Mary's Prayer.
With subtle influences from 60's soul to Steely Dan, this album showed a relfective, at times doubting, but never pessimistic view of what life and love are all about.
Written and by all accounts recorded at home, the domestic concerns of Dundee's first son shine through tracks like Make a Family and Sailing on the Stormy Waters. But it is the one-on-one of love that preoccupies Clark, at times hopeful and happy, at times desolate (try This is Why, J), at times a kick in the grinning teeth - Freefloating.
It is both the themes of the album and this last song that give echoes of Clark's Celtic cousin Paul Buchanan of The Blue Nile, but Clark is altogether tighter and less dreamy than the impossibly romantic Glaswegian. His songs are sweet, yes, but also punchy - and never outstay their welcome.
One of the great riddles of our time is why Gary Clark is not more widely known. Listening to this delicate wee album again only deepens the mystery.

Being the wrong side of 35,
Im currently in the process,(& I know that I`m not alone!) of replacing all my old vinyl album collection with it`s newer, CD format. I had resigned myself to the fact, that some of the rarer,& more obscure albums & artists in my collection,would not be deemed worthy of a reissue by their record company & never reappear "Digitally Re-Mastered" for me to snap up, even CD`s that were not big sellers on release,were often quickly deleted,& just plain "Unavailable" up until recently.
Thankfully all that is rapidly changing & Lost in the many albums that are re-released & within our grasp once again, is this absolute gem, from Gary Clarke.
For the unititiated Gary was the singer/songwriter for the band "Meet Danny Wilson" Still no wiser?! their only real hit was "Marys Prayer" which was a good little pop single, & still gets a bit of airplay here & there, but as a band, they failed to set the world alight & in 1993 Gary went solo,& recorded "Ten Short Songs About Love" in a recording studio in his bedroom!!.
The album is a classic,"We sail on the stormy waters" is a massive tune with a great singalong pop chorus, just as "Freefloating" showcases another potentially great pop single, but with lovely production & a jazzy tip.
"Nancy" is a more "folky", driving acoustic song, that is again, instantly appealing & illustrates Gary Clarkes obvious talent & versatility.
The rest of the songs are also,all well worth the listen,
This is not simply a collection of individual,unconnected tunes,
They each play their part in making up what is a fine album.
It`s a mature,well rounded release & at the end of the last track you just cannot help but like the guy!!

If you want maddeningly addictive tunes, imaginative and moving lyrics, infectious beats all topped off with a hearfelt and genuinely emotive vocal performance then Gary is your man.
I think great music is that which can bear repeated playing and still maintain its freshness and appeal - I've been playing this every day since I bought it two months ago and it still raise the hair on my neck with it's sheer gorgeousness.
As with Be Bop Mop Top this album was cruelly ignored in it's day - apparently three tracks were release as singles in 1993 - if you can't get massive succes with great, timeless tracks such as these what can you do?
Just buy it! You'll be listening to it for years!

A bril' ablum from start to finish, especially the singles, 'We Sail On Stormy Waters', 'Freefloating' and 'Make A Family': Which where released as very rare to get 3 double CD singles; YRCDX 093, YRCDX 094 & YRCDX 105. Worth finding/searching for the extra bonus demo, live, and cover versions on them.

I first heard of Gary Clark as 'Danny Wilson' on the album 'Meet Danny Wilson'. The first song was 'Mary's Prayer', that I never get sick of and then 'Davy' and 'Aberdeen'. Then later with 'The Second Summer Of Love' from 'Bebop Moptop' album. Then there is a compilation called 'Sweet' and 'The Best Of...' collection.

After his solo material he turned himself around and formed a band again called 'King L' with the excellent CD 'Grand Day For Gravity' with the opening track 'Tragedy Girl', 'All Hail The Alien Queen' and 'Life After You' such a gem of a record. Then once again he disappered again, never to be see or heard.

Then one day in a small local record store (Backbeat) in Belfast (my home town) They had the new batch of singles in for the week, and found a single called 'Dizzy Moon', with female singer by this new band called 'Transistor'. So I took the chance with the unsual title[...] and of home to play. Low and behold credits read Gary Clark. I sat and though no can't be, this is so different in style even for him, but I liked the track and off I went and got the CD 'Transistor' the album. This is an alternative rock/dance/chillout album. It took a few times to play, but it is a grower to get into, and indeed it was the one and only Gary Clark's new Band.

After this outing on plastic disk, once again he has gone AWOL, where are you now Gary.... The guy is a real talented artist/singer/song writer/ and multi styled musican, just like Todd Rundgren is. So "Please come out to play" (good title for an album mate), we fans are missing you. [...]
