  • pero qué cantaaante! capo
  • Loved his simply Red Work even with his "new" direction
  • TRIBUTE TO BOBBY is absolutely perfect ! But I must say it wasn't a big surprise for me... If we go through Mick's material,attentively,we'll find a bit of Bobby's kind of music "hidden" in there. LEAD ME ON was the way Bobby has found to say that he wanted some lady's "love to be his only guide". Mick has said that in many other similar ways. "LOVE" was wht has always moved Mick while writing his songs or choosing some others to sing. All about love and the happiness and suffering it brings. "IT'S ONLY LOVE" he's been talking about. Love has been LEADing him ON his whole life.He's the guy who has said openly "I WANNA FALL FROM THE STARS STRAIGHT INTO YR ARMS" !!! And "SAY U LOVE ME ALL AROUND THE WORLD". It doesn't matter if he's singing "GRANMA'S HANDS", "FAIRGROUND", "COME..MY KITCHEN" , "4 YR BABIES", "N. NURSE", "SO NT OVER U", "HILLSIDE AV.", "PERFECT LOVE"... Whatever he sings,he'll be singing along with his soul, that's why Bobby's songs fitted perfectly in his voice.
  • That's odd...much as I love Mick, why are there *two* separate entries for his solo work (one listing him as "Hucknall" and the other as "Mick Hucknall")? Or did they simply decide that his music's so nice, it should be entered twice? :)
  • Olha só! Até que enfim no Brasil. Um dos grupos mais musicais que conheço
  • Hmm. It says just "Hucknall" on the cover, so maybe that's how he wants it tagged. Here's the infamous Jarvis (Cocker) conundrum once again...
  • New LP by Mick? Here's polish review of it: Cheers maan.
