Paul Weller: Royal Albert Hall, London
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 24 November 1993
ANYONE WHO doubts that a little fatherhood can be a dangerous thing should have been at the first of Paul Weller's two sold-out London gigs. Where once the famously stony visage would have remained intent on the task, on Monday Weller smiled between songs, and even, after returning for a third encore, allowed himself to observe that we had been "a great audience". The Weller of old would have dismissed such pleasantries as contemptible show-bizzery.
