when ‘life in easy steps’ was on the radio last year, I thought, I like that and looked it up on youtube but I didn’t go any further then that, then in February my wife and I went to see Justin Currie in concert, I had just found out about Justin’s fantastic solo work. Justin Currie had a support act and that happened to be Robert Vincent, when he came on for his set I hadn’t realised this was the man who sang ‘life in easy steps’ and when it came up in his set, I thought I know that song from somewhere, I enjoyed Robert Vincent’s acustic set, but to be honest all I wanted to see that night was Justin Currie, Justin was fantastic. At the end of the concert a few of us waited to meet Justin and while we waited Robert was loading his car near us, he looked quite shy, he said nothing as he passed us and we said nothing either, I now wish I had shaken his hand, but as I’ve said I was so looking forward to seeing and meeting Justin nothing else mattered to me that night. When back home I looked Robert up and listened to as many songs as I could find on youtube, I enjoyed what I found and decided to buy the album and I’m glad I did, I’m not one for downloads as I think the quality is better on cd and I like to own an album, I would recommend this 2 cd set, the second cd has 4 tracks on and includes track 1 ‘the bomb, this is a great track, also other fav’s on cd 1 are ‘life in easy steps’, ‘blue’, ‘second chance’, ‘burns [like cotton in the fields]’, ‘light of the stars’, ‘riot’s cry’, ‘demons’, ‘who are you to say’, ‘the passage’, [ from cd 2 ], ‘how do you sleep’, The quality of the cd packaging is second to none, the 2 cd’s are in like a small hard back book, with lyrics and pictures, a bargain for £8 delivered. This is real music, it’s nice to hear a new recording artist being true to himself and not having to record what he’s told to. The production of the album is spot on, real but not to raw and not over produced, Robert has a distinctive voice, quality musicians, great to hear Melvin Duffy on pedal steel guitar/dobro, [ I think he is on 1 or 2 of my Lilac Time cd’s ], I like those type of instruments , we met Union Station/Jerry Douglas another great dobro player when we went to see Alison Krauss and Union Station in concert [ players at the top of their game ]. I would like to thank Robert Vincent for a great album and wish him luck and hope more people buy this album and next time I would like to shake his hand. Also if you like, I think, Justin Currie ,’What is love for’, album is also 5*.
