Ralph Mctell -o- Not Till Tomorrow
06/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first puchased this album way back in 1972 and though Ralph's written and recorded many tracks since I still relate to this album as his to be his best! It holds a great variety guitar styles and simply goes to show that he certainly has a greater depth to his range than The Streets Of London alone! The other albums I'd recommend a listen (as second bests) are both live, "Ralph Albert & Sydney" and his more recent release "The Ferryman" . Ralph I'm afraid, seems to be one of these artists that is more suited unacompanied, though that can't be said for this album. Early John Martyn recording are a suitable companion to Ralph's. Enjoy!"
A Perfect Portfolio...
Randall D. Whitaker | Bellbrook, OH USA | 11/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When I evaluate an 'album' (as an album), I tend to approach it as a portfolio of material representative of a given artist. It is the collective whole - the 'multi-course dining experience' - that to my mind should be judged as an 'album'. For me, then, a 'great album' is one which in one sitting provides a rich sampling of that artist's depth and variety. Additionally, I consider it crucial that the artist (as opposed to the producer, etc.) 'come through' clearly. After 30 years, I have yet to find any competitor to _Not Til Tomorrow_ as my #1 'portfolio - album' of all time."
McTell's Best
C. H Smith | Bowling Green, Kentucky United States | 08/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own a lot of McTell's albums, and I've always believed this is far and away his best. In fact, I would go out on a limb and say "Not Till Tomorrow" ranks with the very best contemporary folk albums of the last thirty-five years. It's nearly an hour long, and every cut on it is a first-rate example of expert song-writing craft, not to mention the performances. Two in particular--'Birdman' and 'Gypsy'--are just about as good as it gets. The mood swings from atmospheric to political to contemplative to comical and ironic effortlessly, and although McTell's voice is rather ordinary-sounding, it's expressive enough to hold its own among the sensational array of side musicians he has backing him up (and he's quite a good guitarist in his own right!). I love this album, and you will too!"
