A Best Kept Secret
on 5 June 2001
Hardly anyone in the UK knows about Murray Head, but in France he was a superstar for a period, and it's becuase of albums like this. This went out of print on vinyl for a few years and is finally available again at last.
Essentially, this is a romantic album (I am Yours best e.g.), in the days when writing love songs wasn't just about pop music Top 40 junk. Usually an acoustic guitar floating around, Murray's high octave vocals, along with assorted guests, a nice variety of melodies, harmonies, even a sea shanty ! In truth, there isn't a follow up album to this, and in any case, it's a rather dated sound now. But for modern day lovers of singer songwriters like Dido, David Gray, even Coldplay and REM, this is one to add to the collection.
