Customer Review

on 16 January 2011
Troubadour is without doubt one of, if not the best of,Cales offerings.

Hugely influential, with Cocaine and Travelin' Light covered by Clapton.

This was released, initially, in 1976. I first heard it in '77, jubilee year (when the Sex Pistols were riding high, for some obscure reason)??, and I was knocked out by it then and remain so.

I'd forgotten just how good it is, with Cales playing taking the biscuit for innovation, no one plays with Cales unique style,with a voice vaguely reminiscent of Hoagy Carmichael or Mose Allison, sadly Cale remains profoundly underrated and overlooked by many.

Overlook this at your peril, you will never again hear such quality from an ultra cool group of seriously switched on musicians, playing their hearts out,thoroughly recommended, obviously!!
