"I ordered this CD three months ago because a friend recommended it, and decided to write a review since I find myself listening to it more than any others in my collection. It is a real gem!

Proby's duets with Marc Almond on Yesterday Has Gone and Child of Clay are particularly good. Yesterday Has Gone, originally a '60s hit by Cupid's Inspiration, is irresistible. If it doesn't lift your mood nothing will. Suburban Opera is a masterpiece of songwriting (by Marc Almond and Neal Whitmore) performed by Proby with the feeling of musical theater. It conjures up visual images that are a mixture of Maud Muller and Angie Baby. When - If Eddy Arnold never recorded this, he should have. Written by P.J. Proby (under his real name James Marcus Smith), it is a beautiful country flavored ballad. I'm a Roy Orbison fan, so I hesitate to say this, but Proby's version of the Orbison song, Crawling Back, is better than Orbison's recording.

Each track is a different style of music - rock, ballad, country, blues. This guy could probably sing the congressional record and make it sound good.
