5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Great Man's best, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sunday's Child (Audio CD)
I bought this CD to replace a rather old and scratchy vinyl version of the album that I bought not long after it was originally released. The intervening (nearly) 40 years have done nothing to diminish the excellence of the tracks; there are some absolute classics.

Songs like "Sunday's Child" and "You Can Discover" are heart-rendingly beautiful both in their lyrics and in John's arrangement and playing. He was an astoundingly good guitarist and me managed to produce a delicacy in his playing (whether acoustic or electric) that added to the emotion of the words he sang.

Yet at the same time this album marks a further move away from the purely acoustic work that he was originally known for. The album contains a mixture of tracks. Some, like those mentioned previously hark back to his earlier work but others such as "One Day Without You"; "Root Love" and "Clutches" have a distinct jazz-funk feel to them and provide an indication of how his future albums were going to sound.

And of course, there is "Spencer The Rover" a traditional song given a wonderful acoustic arrangement and sung beautifully. He did have a great voice, after all.

What a talent he was. A great song-writer; an excellent singer and a magnificent guitarist.

Rest In Peace, John.
