      As the first person to review this album on here, it gives me pleasure to say Paul's voice has helped me at many difficult a time through the years, to overcome self doubt and believe in myself. His warm tones always lift the spirits and this greatest hits is a reminder of just how wonderful his work is.

      Who is he:

      Bedfordshire based Paul was at his peak in the eighties, quiet of late, making a brief appearance on a reality tv cooking programme.

      On this album:

      'Everytime You Go Away' gets things off to a great start. His voice reminds me of a dog in pain, as he hold onto those notes and seems to howl the lyrics with such misery in his voice. This sad song tugs at the heartstrings and has soulful undertones.

      'Come Back And Stay' smacks of the eighties and has a beat which calls to mind Sade. It is moody and arty and his vocals penetrate right into the heart of the song with intent.

      Paul's duet with Zucchero on 'Senza Una Donna' is a genius amalgamation of voices, with Paul's warm tones sitting well against Zucchero's more seasoned rough croak. The song is magical and summery sounding.

      My final tip is the wonderful 'Love Of The Common People' which seems to play on an almost calypso kind of rhythm, superb drum work and an air of mystery surrounds this track. It makes me think of Africa.

      Overall:

      15 tracks gives you plenty of playing time, very few fillers, just dubious artwork, in which Paul seems to be too close to the camera lens.
