Streets of London,
This review is from: Streets Of London - Best Of (Audio CD)
If, like me, you'd always loved the most famous of Ralph's tracks, "Streets of London" but never quite got round to checking out his other works then this album of 24 tracks is probably the ideal place to start.
Although none of the other 23 tracks are as memorable as the opening "Streets of London" they do make up a pleasant little mix of acoustic folk and guitar blues. The style of most of the tracks is just Ralph and his guitar although some of the songs do feature some background orchestrations and backing singers.
The overall feel is very much like Cat Stevens or The Humblebums with the nature and subject of the tracks swinging from the melancholy of lost love to the quirky dreaminess of seemingly drug induced trips!
At this price? With 24 Tracks? Can't be bad!
