"I don't know how many Amaericans have EVER heard of Nigel Mazlyn Jones' music, but as i'm from England..let me enlighten you all!!.First caught Nigel playing fabulous guitar ar a Barclay James Harvest gig (late 70's), boy, were me & my musical friends impressed!!This guy's voice, and SONGS ,were just INCREDIBLE!!!!!you can see & HEAR this if you just purchase this PHENOMENAL album!!If you're american, & know of the late Nick Drake's musical Genius, then, believe me , this album-"Ship to Shore" is for you!!..it's his very 1st. album, and5 or 6 albums later, it remains a singer-songwriter master-piece!!(maybe glimpses of Donovan/Roy Harper in there).Every, and i mean EVERY track/song is a masterpiece, Nigel's voice, like say Peter Hammill, being totally UNIQUE, once you hear Mazlyn's songs-you're hooked!!!!Songs like Singularly Fine Day, Take me Home, The Lady & the Deer, ..the classic title cut, ...they're all songs that will take a home in you ..FOREVER ....Nigel's 12 string guitar playing is now legendary..( he teaches it from his cottage home in Cornwall..a refugee from 21st. Century bull...., Nigel's music has blessed my life enormously!!..do yourself a big favour..get this c.d., i guarantee you'll want MORE!!!!!"
