Glyn Bailey & the Beholden
GB&B / self-released

Glyn Bailey has made some intriguing albums in the past; his new effort is a concept album about space.

"78RPM" is about loss, and the catchy tune is intriguing. Bailey's a fine singer and this shows well here. "Chains" is a song about human bondage and it has some nice touches. Bailey spins his tale well. "Coz I love you" by Slade gets a cool version, that has some bits of other seventies hits. "Stars" is about how we're all connected, and it's a great song, played with dexterity by Bailey and his band. It's an album that merits close listening and it has some great songs.
