Review by John Noyd
November 2011

It’s hard to imagine after thirty years what Australian singer-songwriter Paul Kelly has left on his bucket list. Song-writer, world-traveler, occasional actor, recent author and crikey folk-poet chronicler of trains, love, cricket, history and gravy, Kelly’s 1997 compilation has just been updated and doubled in size. A muscular busker, kind-hearted huckster and homesick vagabond, Kelly’s tough but tender repertoire employ potent hobo bluegrass, swirling pub-rock blues and electric country-fried soul. Outback rascals, hopeless romantics and crusading criminals buffered in small-town joys and thick-skinned opinions inhabit family scrapbooks, honky-tonk hearts and upstart remarks. Coy references served in soothing cougar growls, “Songs,” showcase a writer’s eye for spirited lyrics, delivering the indescribable in nuance filled with exacting detail, an unblinking witness to foiled fates and unavoidable foibles
