Sunday Morning Coming Down

Here’s something newish, which I know is a bit out-of-kilter with the kind of stuff I usually post here.

This is Phil Hooley, who used to be in The Woolgatherers (not to be mistaken for The Woolpackers, the soap off-shoot/cash in on the line-dancing phenomenon who managed to have a hit in 1996 with Hillbilly Rock Hillbilly Roll).

No, this is from Hooley’s first solo album, Songs From The Backroom, which I think is rather fine. He reminds me in places of John Prine, Don Williams and Mark Knopfler; doubtless you’ll have your own opinion as to whether that constitutes a recommend or not:

Phil Hooley – Learning to Be Still

More soon.
