I feared that Michael Franks might have lost his mojo with the insipid "Rendezvous in Rio", but this is a welcome return to form; a collection of excellent songs, with some gorgeous arrangements and playing, which oozes quality. "Now That The Summer's Here" is one of his best-ever songs, with twists and chord changes of which Steely Dan would be proud. "One Day in St Tropez" and "Summer in New York" are both marvellously tuneful and if the drab weather is getting you down, this CD provides the perfect escape. "Feathers From An angel's Wing" takes us back to his 1980s recording "Blue Pacific" and that's a compliment. Check this out - it's great!
