Beautiful, elegant covers EP

I’m a big fan of JH. When I started listening to his cover of Bowie’s Bewlay Bros I frankly confess that my first thought was ’Oh no – another MOR cover of a rock classic’ but that first thought evaporates quickly – this is a beautifully arranged and beautifully sung version that (almost) makes you forget the Hunky original. Suzanne is the Leonard C classic and again John succeeds in possessing it – a simple piano and echoed vocals arrangement with a touch of synth strings. Mendocino is a Kate & Anna McGarrigle (mother and aunt of Rufus Wainwright, youngsters) classic. I have to say this is my least favourite track – its very good, nicely arranged, but it can’t erase the memory of the pretty perfect original. Highly recommended.

Here John Howard treats them all with obvious love and respect. Superb piano with the lightest touch of arrangements and orchestration.This is an ep that I am now really pleased to have in my collection. A real 10star classic.

Howard was lower-key and more inclined toward eccentric story-songs, and not as gifted with a flair for chart hooks, though he too had a keyboard base to his arrangements, with melodic ideas combining Beatles-Beach Boys pop with '70s singer/songwriter. Howard first tried to enter the record...
