BUDDY WOULD LOVE IT
8 May 2015
I have almost worn out the grooves on my old vynal copy so thought £5.49 a great price to replace it on CD format.. The quality is naturally so much better than my old LP bringing out the subtlety of Don McLean's voice.
The first track , tribute to the late great Buddy Holly , American Pie is simply amazing. Play the game of working out the hidden references or give up and Google it before you go crazy. When McLean was asked what the song meant he simply replied " it means I don't need to work no more". Yes it will be played forever. There is also his other big hit Vincent a truly beautiful, tender song. In addition there are several other subtle numbers like Winter Wood , Empty Chairs to name but two, but really there are no make weight songs on this album they are all good and all worth a listen . May I suggest that you get a copy and enjoy one of the all time great albums from a master singer, song writer, performer.
