Jackie Leven - Shining Brother, Shining Sister (2003) Retail CD
It is extremely difficult to understand why Jackie Leven is so little known on this island. This album is by far the best of his work thus far. A classic example of Celtic soul whilst mixing poetic lyricism with the vocals and range so seldom heard.What a mix of style and substance. The pounding opening track of 'Classic Northern Diversion' - Better driving music you will seldom hear. The sonically upbeat, almost poppy, 'Irresistible romance' with a hook that I defy you not to hum. 'Savannah waltz' is the vehicle that allows this soul balladeer to fully exploit such a powerful voice.'My philosophymore…' - a beautifully crafted work that shows the poetry of this guy's lyrics. I could rant about them all. However don't let the blend of lyrics/poetry and the variety of hugely talented musicians working with this fife troubador be the only reasons for your purchase, add in the indescribably well engineered production on this album that just lifts this piece to another dimension. The terribly hackneyed advice about only buying one album holds so true...
