David Gray: Flesh (Hut 8 39770 24 10 tracks/45 mins/FP)

Andrew Mueller, Melody Maker, 17 September 1994

FLESH. HONEST title. Bare, bloody, real and sweaty. Neat choice from a man apparently on an endearingly Quixotic solo crusade to rescue the idea of the folksinger/songwriter from the forbidding depths of credibility, where it currently resides along with quadrophonic sound, Betamax videos, communism and the other discarded notions of our age. Flesh. Fingers on strings. Heart on sleeve.

Total word count of piece: 388
