For people of a certain age who can remember "Whispering" Bob Harris presenting The Old Grey Whistle Test in the '70s when it regularly featured bands like Ten Years After this album will be a real gem. I saw The Paul Poulton Project earlier this year along with over 1,000 other people at event called Psalms Alive 2007 in Sheffield and I'm pleased to say that this album is every bit as good as the live performances. The band's songs have a cheeky, quirky humour that shows through in song titles like "I Don't Know Bob Dylan" and "Everything Is Falling To Bits" but the real strength of the band shows through on the numbers where there's plenty of chunky blues/rock guitar. I tried very hard to think of somebody to compare PPP to and every time the name Steve Miller came to mind (you may need to check your dads' vinyl collection!) though really I think these guys are just doing their own thing and doing it very, very well.
