So fucking good. People only know him for his acting but they have to listen to his songs! I appreciate him more as a singer and I think he belongs behind a mic playing piano. (not that he isn't a talented actor as well as a talented musician). Keep up the good work!
I'm trying to find other artists and songs with the same kind of sound as Hugh's rendition of St. James Infirmary. None of the other songs on this album on Laurie's new one are the same. The sort of quirky, melancholy melodic stuff with the unusual instruments. Dark, but not Bohren & Der Club of Gore dark. So far I've found just a pre-war recording of a jug band that sounds kinda the same. Anyone care to help me out?
