Kevin Bryan's Record Reviews

6:00am Saturday 12th April 2014

Billy Bragg,"Live at the Union Chapel London" (Cooking Vinyl)- The atmospheric Union Chapel in Islington provided the venue for a very special Billy Bragg concert in June 2013, as the Bard of Barking and his impressive band regaled their London audience with some choice extracts from his recently released album,"Tooth & Nail" and a generous helping of classic creations from his illustrious back catalogue. Bragg's approach to music-making may be a little more mellow and folksy these days but the passage of time hasn't dimmed the impact of emotionally charged ditties such as "Between The Wars" or "Never Buy The Sun," and this splendid CD/DVD package closes with Billy's solo rendition of the entire "Life's A Riot With Spy Vs.Spy" album.
