Jimmy Nail - the singing career

Post by poxeymoxey » Wed Feb 06, 2013 10:22 pm

Anybody else wish Jimmy would resurrect his singing career? Always liked his singing and bought all his albums. Saw him on the Crocodile Shoes tour in 1995. My favourite album of his is the one that did the least well which was Tadpoles In A Jar released in 1999. A great album and some very personal songs on it, he even says in his autobiography that it is his best album. Shame it didn't do so well.

Tadpoles in a jar is a great LP. In his book he talks about the record company not getting behind it. Shame as it is his best album

It's something I have never listened to.
I have everything else, just not this one, yet.

Fantastic album. His best! Much better than Croc Shoes et al. Very personal moments on it too. Love the duet with Eddi Reader, comical bits in this track too. You can get it for a matter of pence on Amazon Marketplace. Got it when it came out, pity it didn't do very well tho :(
