Gilbert O'Sullivan - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate

GILBERT O'SULLIVAN 


Singer/songwriter Gilbert O'Sullivan successfully combined a flair for Beatlesque popcraft with an old-fashioned music hall sensibility to emerge as one of the most distinctive and popular new performers of the early 1970s. Born Raymond O'Sullivan in Waterford, Ireland on December 1, 1946, he went on to attend art school in Swindon, England, writing songs throughout his formative years and sending out demo tapes to little avail. After graduating he went to work in a London department store; one of his co-workers there was under contract with CBS, and soon O'Sullivan was signed to the label as well. Early singles like "What Can I Do?" and "Mr. Moody's Garden" were released to little attention, however, and so O'Sullivan sent his demo to impresario Gordon Mills, whose MAM label was home to superstars like Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck; the gambit worked, and his first single for MAM, "Nothing Rhymed," became a Top Ten U.K. hit in late 1970.

  2. Amazing collection. That Latin one that takes the piss out of Peggy Lee's album cover is hilarious.

  3. "Alone again.." is one of those rare songs that transcends its time to become a true standard, heard everywhere. It must be something of incredible satisfaction to achieve that feat for any songwriter.

  6. Forgot something... I was very happy to see that you included Booklets in some cases as those (when available) are an important part of the release, informative, and usually helpful in better appreciating the music therein.
    Big Thanks OG!
