  • Прекрасный исполнитель,прослушав его песни хоть раз хочется их слушать снова и снова. Браво!
  • Doing theatre work in the USA isn't he? I'm sure I saw he was doing something with Sting over there. Singer before he was an actor. People forget that.
  • what happened to Jimmy Nail ?? good to see his catalogue at spotify.
  • Big River is a great song but is hindered by the parochial nature if the theme limiting its appeal to Tyneside in the same way as Chris Rea's Steel River is identified with Teeside. Both great songs. Some people need to realise that the Gazza version of Fig on the Tyne is NOT typical of regional songs. ps the original Lindisfarme version is a folk classic.
  • Big River, great song. Deserves more recognition!
  • she's lying!
  • "The Nail File: The Best of Jimmy Nail" < Oh god really? Nail files are pretty gross...
  • Big River would be miles more commonly known and respected if it was listed as a Mark Knopfler song with Jimmy Nail singing...real shame
  • Presuming The Flame Still Burns isn't here because technically it was done by Strange Fruit. . .
  • Love the croaky voice. "Big River" does it for me.
