I bought a second hand copy of this in early 1988, it was always stowed away in the collection but last week I dug it out and transferred it to CD and mp3 for the Sony digital player. I really enjoyed it and even though his voice is a little under par as a singer, there is an innocence about it. I can imagine Chris de Burgh singing these songs and doing an even better job! The standout is definitely "Let The River Flow" the last track, could have been a great song on Dire Straits "Making Movies" too. Mark Knopfler plays on most of the tracks, both nylon and electric guitars but he's pretty low in the mix I've noticed. It is John's debut after all I suppose and he also plays acoustic guitar as well as his main instrument, bass. The rest of the players are Terry Williams, drums, Alan Clarke, piano, Chris White, saxes, Phil Palmer, guitar, so it's most of Dire Straits anyway. It's a little nugget for fans of Dire Straits and not a bad LP at all. I also bought his second album "Glass" on cassette in 1988 and then I found a vinyl copy years later but that's a far more polished affair that lacks the magic and the soul of the debut even though his voice had improved by then, but sadly the material is more generic.
This album cover has the same photo as Dire Straits "Walk of Life" single!!
