NICK LAWRENCE | MINORITY OF ONENESS | CD | b7UE 007

As soon as I heard this album was in the pipeline I was excited. It has always been a mystery to me why Nick Lawrence doesn't have a lot more recordings available. Nick hails from the royal town of Windsor, close to London. He's lived in Germany for many years where although he's been playing and writing quality songs all his life. There's practically nothing available by him that I am aware of. Then it was a double whammy when I saw that b7UE was the producer, art director, basically the person responsible for getting it all together, I was sure then it would be more than just good.

I wasn't disappointed. A whopping 16 top quality songs, beautiful package, Nicks trademark morning after voice captured in all its raw beauty (just check out his voice's natural fade out/decay on the last words of several lines in "Sweet Magenta"). The Blues and English folk rooted guitar playing evident in tracks like "What's the use in living" are a feature of Nick's live gigs and this is definitely one of my favourites. Wonderful trumpet from Mayc Meyer, great tone on the trumpet and voice, this is Nick at his finest, a real pearl.

I could go though each track but I don't want to be a spoiler and you should really buy a copy , open a bottle of wine and enjoy what is 100% a labour of love from all involved. I should mention Uli Rohde's sweet, sweet pedal steel on "Magali Dancing" features some really beautifully understated bow work from bassist Johannes Alisch. Also Julia Vardigans mood evoking cello on Isabella Last but not least the sterling performance from Christine Huebner whose oriental percussion and backing vocals endows the complete sound with a wonderful floating ambience and really makes for a unique overall feel to the whole work.

Thanks to b7UE a slice of Nick Lawrence's song-writing life has been documented and preserved. It's not perfect. It was recorded on even less than a shoestring budget, but it's clear to see that everyone involved loved what they were doing. It's round and complete. It's not something you will pick and choose from, rather something you will want to hear in it's entirety, again and again. It's a much needed documentation of a great songwriter that regrettably we hear from far too seldom. Songs of love breaking up, love starting up, commentary on the human condition, gorillas in the zoo and the state of the media in this messed up world flow effortlessly into one another. Clocking in at one hour and five minutes this is a really good deal. Finally, when you think this CD has given you everything, it gives you something else, but I will leave that for you to discover. *****
