Definitely Worth a Listen but not an Outstanding Album
on 6 February 2016
This was Joe’s 19th album. I was very surprised to learn that he only had two top ten albums, (excluding compilations), this one didn’t even chart in the UK. Joe will go down as one of our greatest ever Brit’ singers. Here he sings ‘others’ classics from over the years, from some of the very best songwriters.
The backing and musicianship is top class as you’d expect with the likes Beck, Clapton & Botti included.
I really like some of the songs on here, whilst others I can take or leave. Of course he makes a decent job of all of the songs as you’d expect, though overall for me, this is a goodish album but not a great one. I did enjoy listening to Joe rasping out these lovely songs - He was a quality performer of that there’s no doubt.
