CD Reviews

Transition
Ozzie | Brugge, Flanders | 09/14/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This early recording by Scottish comedian Billy Connolly (no actual recording date is given) shows him midway in transition from folk singer into comedian. All of the tracks are songs, and some of them (actually the majority) are straight-ahead folk songs, with not a hint of humour, but they stand up as perfectly valid songs on their own, with often more than a hint of sentimentality ("Song for the small man" and "A little of your time" come to mind). More often than not, though, these non-comedy songs are introduced by Connolly, who can't help but show the funny side of things. The other songs are more clearly comedy-songs ("Stainless steel wellies" "Glasgow Central" and "McBinty" are long-time favorites). Anybody who is familiar with Connolly's stage routines will love this album, even though the emphasis is rather on songs than on jokes. Connolly's wit seeps through anyhow, and makes for an enjoyable record of his early solo career."
Great satire
