I'm not sure if Nutini has had much success out of the UK, but this is a fun album with some wonderful songs on it, including his jungle book-inspired hit Pencil Full Of Lead (he had been singing I Wanna Be Like You in concert for some years prior to the arrival of his self-penned homage). But it's far from the highlight of the album, that surely is the wonderful No Other Way. I realise that his accent is difficult to understand, so for those not used to it, I've found a video of that great song with the lyrics printed!

<snipped clip>

He seems to have been very quiet since that album emerged back in 2009. I sincerely hope we hear more from him soon.


He's great! What accent is that? Can't quite place it.

I think he is from Glasgow, but part Italian. Something like that. He was about 20 on that recording, but sounds more like 50. A strange voice, but wonderful singer and song.


Thanks, really. I just spent an hour or so on YouTube, exploring Scottish accents (tough process, but there are tutorials, honestly) and more Scottish music (which I always loved). Lotta bagpipes, but really, it's very, very beautiful. I had thought the best non-American voices generally came from Ireland, but there are exceptions!

As to his accent - not to mention the vocal presentation, still sounded a wee bit different!

Thanks, again. I like this guy.

P.S. -- "50"? Naw. He sounds WAY older than 50! Great, though.
P.P.S. -- Back on topic: listened to this yesterday, on my IPod. Both discs, "Who Wants To Live Forever," "Everybody Hurts," "Hymn to Her," Rod Stewart's "Love Minus Zero," etc., etc. Annie Lennox singing "just like Elvis Presley, singing live in Las Vegas, where did you go?" Go figure . . .

There are hints of Nutini's true accent in his phrasing, but what he does is very stylised -- allowing words to fall out of a vocal grip that clasps with one hand and holds loose with the other. He's in complete command of his artistry and does everything with apparent ease -- and a great sense of fun. He's very talented.

The new album from Jack White.it's brilliant.The guitar is there and loud but the piano takes over on many tracks and it all comes together in one almighty sonic boom.

Blizzard is no doubt a classic album. Rhoads was brilliant on that album.

Sadly, Sharon Osbourne and Legacy botched the 2011 reissue. Originally it was supposed to be a two-disc edition, but the ongoing issues with Bob Daisley derailed plans. So, the Mr. Crowley Live EP remains out-of-print (including the long-lost song You Said It All), additional cuts from the 1980 Southampton gig remain unreleased, and Daisley's rehearsal tapes remain in his possession.

Yes,the 2011 reissue was botched but at least Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake's superb contributions are back in the mix after being replaced in the vandalised 2002 reissues and the remastered sound is great plus it only cost me 4 quid so it was worth it but as you say it could have been a proper legacy release.

Does your copy have a glitch on Dee (IIRC, it was around the .47 mark)? There was a digital error on Dee on many first pressings.

You cannot be revealing this sort of sensitive information - digital errors are reserved for Elvis titles only! Don't fight the propoganda machine!

Great stuff from Jerry Jeff and great to finally hear Walkers Collectables for the first time.(This is it's first release on CD and the LP has been out of print for years)
Ridin' High was also hard to track down and It might be Jerry Jeffs best studio album ever.Loose,rowdy,rockin' Texan country music at it's best.Best heard with an accompanying beer,preferably Lone star.
