This is Classic Van and a Great Listen.
on 22 July 2017
I have listened to every one of Van’s albums. I have seen him in concert so many times – although now he’s very expensive to watch.
The obvious thing to say here is just how good the production is on this album – tickling piano, pumping sax, restrained drums – it’s very jazz - orientated in places but still hits all the high spots when it needs to. So many great songs, and yes, there’s a few I wish he’d put on here, but so many of the old favourites have been given a ‘clean’ that it’s an absolute delight to listen to.
I could eulogise about many tracks on here and many of those missing, but all in all, this is as close as you’ll get to perfection.
For me this is 10/10.
