These are two of Pete Browns best albums put together to make a great purchase. With Brown in superb voice and strong songs mainly on "Coats to Jerusalem".
The two albums do sit together well, and it is full of eccentric songs that almost seem to be popish in structure. Very easy to like from most angles.
There is some nice playing from Phil Ryan too. This shows that it was not him to blame for Mans mediocre latter periods.

Although overshadowed by his work as Jack Bruce's lyricist in both Cream and the remarkable series of twelve Bruce solo albums from 1969 - 2003, Pete Brown has had a very well respected parallel career producing solo albums since 1969.

Here Brown plays with Phil Ryan (his solo songwriting partner & former Man keyboard player) on their two efforts from the 1990s.

Ardours of the Lost Rake is a more tentative effort, being Browns first since 1977, and his first since taking singing lessons! On Coals to Jerusalem they really hit their stride, it is as good as any Brown solo album and required listening.

They do sound like a Union Jack Steely Dan for the baby boomers. But anyone interested in how a 60s rock icon can grow old with grace need look no further.This is sophisticated rock of a high order.

Excellently repackaged & remastered by Brown & Cherry Red records with 4 bonus tracks these albums have worn very well indeed. Check out the equally excellent follow ups Road of Cobras (2010) and Perils of Wisdom (2013)
