Wild but not a Stray,
This review is from: Stray (Audio CD)
The first time I heard this - coming as it did a couple of years on from the classic High-land Hard Rain I was dissappointed but I was amazed to find that it sneaks in under your radar and before I knew it I realised that at least half the tracks here are as compelling as Roddy has wrote.
The obvious favourite is the Crying Scene with its 'You only get one hit' chorus and lyrics bursting with life, but before you know it you are rocked by Get Outta London, smooched by Over my Head, moved by Notting Hill Blues and charmed by the final sucker punch of Song for a Friend [hear Roddy and Eddi Reader's [Fairground Attraction] version if you can].
Deceptively charming, eclectic and, as always lyrically fascinating - it's very good value at the price - even if you aren't already a Roddy convert.
