• bob lind Magellan Was Wrong (CD, £12.95)

    label: big beat

    The highly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed “Finding You Again” proves once more that time has not diminished Bob Lind’s brilliance.  “Magellan Was Wrong” contains 12 new recordings including a rare cover of Tom Paxton’s ‘Bottle Of Wine’ and is a testament to Lind’s evolution – 50 years after ‘Elusive Butterfly’, he continues to hone and reshape his style. From the cry-from-the-guts opener ‘I Don’t Know How To Love You’, to the symphonic closing piece ‘A Break In The Rain’, these songs demonstrate a wide melodic variation.  Lind’s lyrics are as romantic and imaginative as those of any songwriter alive. But unlike the work of many of his troubadour-poet contemporaries, Lind’s work is more than just literary and sharply constructed. It’s highly listenable. Delivered with that ageless voice – as strong and expressive as ever – this music reaches the heart every bit as much as it reaches the mind.  Long-time fans Richard Hawley and Dion both write introductions to the sleeve-notes and give new insight into Lind and what he has meant to so many of the younger artists who credit him for inspiring and informing their musical styles.
