Eric Bogle is one of the truly great songwriters.
on 3 February 2002
You may not have heard the voice, but you will certainly have heard some Eric Bogle songs, without even being aware of who the man is. "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda" ans "No Man's Land" are 2 of the greatest anti-war songs ever written, and have been covered countless times. To hear Eric singing them for himself, with real feeling and sorrow, is a pleasure. The haunting "Glasgow Lullaby" leaves you speechless. However, Eric's tremendous humour is also found in "He's Nobody's Moggy Now" (sorry cat lovers) and "Silly Slang Song". Even if you do not normally think about folk music, add this to your collection. A truly memorable album.
