Modesty Forbids
 
Modesty Forbids Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $18.00
Artist: Graham Gouldman
 
 
Quantity:
 

Graham Gouldman first made his name as an unusually gifted  jobbing songwriter in the mid sixties,penning hits for outfits such as The Yardbirds, Herman’s Hermits and The Hollies while holding down a day job in a men’s outfitters,but he’s probably best remembered these days for his work with 10cc a decade or so later. “Modesty Forbids” is Graham's first album in eight years, the fifth album of his solo career. With Graham’s 10cc tours enjoying ever-increasing success around the world in recent years, in 2018 he was invited by Ringo Starr to join his All Starr Band for tours of Europe and the USA, during which the band played three 10cc songs, elevating Graham’s profile yet further.  That relationship continues, with Ringo making a very special guest appearance playing drums on “Standing Next To Me”.  “Finds the consumate pop craftsman in typically polished and tuneful form.  His public profile may have slipped a little, but he can still turn out a memorable ditty when the occasion demands it and he’s in particularly fine fettle here.” – OriginalRock.net   “The record confirms that Graham is a sensitive and classy songwriter but not afraid to collaborate.  “The song ‘Standing Next To Me’ reflects his time with Ringo Starr, a real opportunity to rub shoulders with an artist whose band influenced Graham’s formative years.  It is nice recognition and very autobiographical.  The album takes a turn to jazz for ‘That Love’s Right There’, reinforcing that he is also a great stylist, helping to explain his writing for others over the years, a skill he honed working for Kasenatz Katz publishing house in the late 60’s.  ‘It’s Not You It’s Me’ originally intended for the modern version of Yardbirds is another standout along with ‘What Time Won’t Heal’ and ‘Hangin’ By A Thread’.  Lyrically, he is not afraid to touch on modern malaise with ‘Wake Up Dreamer’ a song I am sure 10cc would have embraced in the 70’s.  Throughout the album he’s been aided by long-term collaborator Graeme Pleeth and Iain Hornal, also a member of the current 10cc line-up, co-writes two songs.  Another kindred spirit, Phil Thornalley, co-writes the Beatle-esque ‘Waited All My Life For You’.  ‘Modesty Forbids’ reflects the dying art of fine pop songwriting and craftsmanship.  Add in immaculate musicianship and a main-man who is still humbled by his fellow peers the album title becomes more understandable.  Graham is another national treasure and this latest album one to be treasured.” – GetReadyToRockMe.uk  GREAT!!
