Wild Life's in Season Again,
This review is from: Original Sinner (Audio CD)
One singer/sonwriter who is due a major scale rediscovery by hard core serious pop fans is Lou Christie. He made records that combined the polar opposites of bubblegum pop and a Scott Walker-esque grandeur. I can't think of anyone else in 1965(not even Brian Wilson or the Beatles) who made a single that was so ahead of the game, was so inventive and packed so much into just 3 minutes as Lou did with the jaw droppingly brilliant Lightnin' Strikes. Lou Christie cast himself in the dual roles of saviour and sinner. This is a complex artist with a soaring multi-octave vocal talent. Wild Life's in Season is another Christie masterwork full of mysticism and twists & turns. Painter and Rhaspody in the Rain are so full of longing and passion you'll think Lou's heart is about burst out the speakers.
This is an excellent introduction to the weird and very wonderful pop world of Lou Christie and let's hope the revival starts here.
