JAMES WHILD LEA - Therapy (2009)
A brand new album of self-penned songs from Jim Whild Lea, legendary bassist and songwriter for Slade, one of the most popular and influential groups in pop history. Jim's immense skill as a songwriter is evident throughout, alongside his much overlooked musicianship. Also incuded is a bonus disc recorded live at the Robin R&B Club in 2002, featuring versions of Slade hits Cum On Feel The Noize and Mamma We're All Crazee Now alongside classic tracks such as Hey Joe, I Am The Walrus, You Really Got Me, Substitute and Wild Thing. - amazon.com
"Therapy" is Jim Lea’s first solo album since the early 90s, the man who was responsible for penning Slade’s hits back in the day, old enough to be your dad, but that is not immediately obvious from listening to the record. Wonderfully crafted songs, it is an album in the true sense. On "Therapy", James Whild Lea showcases his song-writing ability, by penning the kind of songs which are quite simply really well written. In a world of mediocre songwriters pushing albums on more style than substance this record harks back to the Paul McCartneys of song-writing, welding effective melodies to imaginative arrangements, and it is quite simply a joy.
