This album was released in 1973 following the amazingly original albums 'Back To Front' and 'Himself' released in 1972 and 1971. It seems the 70s are O'Sullivan's vintage era and it is astonishing he could keep writing so many songs of highest quality and originality. Like the previous album, this one includes, not only hit songs like 'Get Down' and 'Ooh Baby', but also heart-warming and memorable songs like 'Where peaceful waters fllow', 'Afriend of mine' and 'They've only themselves to blame'. One of the characteristics of this album is the unabashed sense of humour and striking melodies which go very well with the witty lyrics in the songs like 'I'm a writer not a fighter', 'Who knows perhaps maybe' and 'If you love me like you love me'. This is certainly one of the best albums by O'Sullivan.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1974 album from the Irish/British singer/songwriter. Recorded in Los Angeles, Gilbert's fourth album, another UK Top Ten hit, is full of witty, carefully-crafted songs and very successfully blends his very British dancehall sensibility with a smooth West Coast feel. This remastered edition features seven non-album singles and hard-to-find B-sides as bonus tracks.

"Every Song Has Its Play" is an Irish-English singer-songwriter Gilbert O’Sullivan’s 12th studio album, originally released in May 1995. The 14 tracks included in this album are soundtrack from his semi-autobiographical musical "Every Song Has its Play" and it is one of O'Sullivan's best albums released in the 90s alonside "Sounds of the Loop". It includes the wonderfully humourous and gentle hit song "Dear Dream" and heart-achingly poignant but beautiful songs like "I wish I could cry", "Pretty Polly", "Can't find my way home", and "You don't own me" which reflect his struggle as a young artist and his painful experience through the legal battle in the 70s. It is remarkabke even his most painful experience has become a source of inspiration for his songs and he could voice the bane and sorrow of the show-business with such honesty and humanity that it touches anyone who listens to this album.

A sudden switch in image accompanied Gilbert O'Sullivan's second album, 1972's Back to Front and its simultaneously released separate single "Alone Again (Naturally)." Gone was the mischievous little scamp sporting a jaunty cap and hand-me-down tweeds, in was a slick, hairy-chested lothario and along with this visual makeover came an aural overhaul, with O'Sullivan's sprightly show tune-inspired pop sounding slicker than before. And it's not just that Back to Front is given a gloss that would not have seemed out of place on a televised variety show from 1972, it's that O'Sullivan is taking great care to write sprightly theatrical tunes, songs that take great pride in their clever-clever twists, smiling, crowd-pleasing melodies, and the proudly cheeky sentimentality that drips off of “Clair,” to name the most obvious example here. In many ways, the unabashed showbiz cheer of Back to Front trumps the bedsit introspection of Himself: in his heart Gilbert O’Sullivan is a song-and-dance man possessing a way with a snappy hook or tearjerking melody, qualities that are amply – and charmingly – displayed here.

Gilbert O’Sullivan’s unique blend of melodic craftsmanship, witty wordplay, topical acuity and surrealist humour has given him an enduring and endearing career. His songwriting knack has outlived and transcended fashion, global million-sellers, critical acclaim, court cases and an occasional tendency to reclusiveness. Now recognised as one of our great singer-songwriters, he’s been championed in recent years by everyone from Morrissey to Paul Weller, from Difford & Tilbrook to Neil Diamond. There’s a case for him being our own Randy Newman or Harry Nilsson. Certainly Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Laura Marling, Kings of Leon, Ray LaMontagne and Paul McCartney), who produces his new album Gilbert O’Sullivan, is a clued-up enthusiast. “I’ve been a fan of Gilbert’s for years,” he says. “He’s a true original.”

What’s eating Gilbert O’Sullivan these days? He might have had his troubles with the music industry and the media in the past but why does he continue to harbour so much bitterness and resentment? On the back of Irlish, printed in bold type are the following lines taken from his song, ‘Me’: “You can’t make music at your age/Unless of course it’s dung/Well balls to those who take that view/Especially if they’re young.”

"The Very Best Of Gilbert O'Sullivan" on Star Records is an excellent scandinavian compilation of the hits by the Irish singer who was successful in the UK in the charts from 1970-1974. Sadly no big hit singles between 1975-1979 but "What's In A Kiss" was a hit in 1980. Unfortunately it does not include the original version of "I Wish I Could Cry" (a version from 1995 is included here) but it does include an excellent selection of singles by Gilbert O'Sullivan including the brilliant single "I'll Believe It When I See It". It also includes other favourite singles like "Why Oh Why Oh Why", "Nothing Rhymed", Alone Again Naturally", "Clair", "No Matter How I Try", Ooh-Wakka-Do, Wakka De," "Matrimony", "Get Down", "You Are You", "Ooh Baby" and "What's In A Kiss".
