Here’s a great lost AOR release from Brian Cullman. Thanks to Dave at Friends of Sound for again appealing to my taste for a poor man’s Al Stewart. This fit the bill quite nicely. Check out the composer himself on the back, pouring a glass of some fine spirit with a flair that’s sets off his feathered hair and scarf. Smooth, yet edgy lyrics are included inside this plain white sleeve with a hand signed B&W sticker of a band photo taken amongst the ruins of Western Civilization. ‘Spare Wing’ is a great tune that really creeps up on you, the organ and guitar setting the mood. It’s a mood of apprehension yet full of longing, he “could surely use a spare wing”, possibly Chinese take-out?
