Worth getting the deluxe version?
on 9 October 2016
With a price differential, at time of writing, of just £1 it is worth getting the deluxe version. The first song, Grey Ghost, is particularly strong. Quite hypnotic, a little psychedelic with a late 60's feel. In fact I could easily imagine it on one of the Bee Gees 60's albums. The other 2 are not quite in the same league. Daddy's Little Girl is country, complete with pedal steel guitar from Alan Kendall. This is the only track he is on out of the whole 15. It is a little like a Bee Gees country song from the early 70's, quite pleasant. The third song,Soldiers Son, is a little bit country and the least impressive of the 3 , although there is nothing wrong with it. The only one I wanted to hear again straight away was Grey Ghost, which I feel should be on the album proper.. Barry's singing on all 3 is strong, not so much of the whispery stuff to be found on the album proper. Makes me wonder if they are older cuts.
