Out last week was the new Dexys album, modestly called Let The Record Show: Dexys Do Irish and Country Soul. This is available as a 2CD+DVD deluxe, with signed copies initially available from Amazon in the UK. Check out some photos of this rather good value package, below…

The ‘signed’ edition features this scribble. We think there’s a K in there somewhere!

    You could never accuse Rowlands’ image changes over the years of being contrived…

  6. Renato says:

    I got it.
    The autograph is…not an autograph but a child-sign!
    The music: cd1 is boring, very boring.
    Cd2 is simply unlistenable.

  7. Charles Hodgson says:

    Great to have more music from Rowland & co. I’m enjoying getting to know the record; “Curragh Of Kildare” is worth the price of admission on it’s own. Compared to his previous ‘covers’ record, “My Beauty”, this is much less “dark” – in places, that was downright scary – and far more positive. It took a long time for “My Beauty” to sink in and absorb, it may be the same with this one, so I’m nowhere near a definitive opinion. I just know I’m glad to have it, and happy to hear Kevin sound – and appear – more comfortable in his own skin. It’s been a long, hard journey from “My Beauty” to “Let The Record Show” – via the 2003 Tour and “One Day I’m Going To Soar” – and the restoration of his belief and confidence in his own talent. I’m glad he’s made it and – seemingly, hopefully – laid his troubled past to rest. He’s one of the UK’s very greatest artists IMO, and a highly sensitive, honest, fragile and idiosyncratic one.

    Very much looking forward to hearing where he takes us next (with or without Sean Reed – the “right-hand man” thing is very important in bringing Kevin’s vision to life, and he’s had – and has – some great collaborators.)

    Great deluxe set for the price, and one of those cds which is slowly growing on me with every listen.

    Hope we get another studio album before this decade is out.

  9. Simon says:

    To say it is signed is somewhat misleading. Mine is the same as in the photo.I do think if you are paying for a “signed” copy the artist could spend a little more time and actually provide you with an autograph and not just a scribble

    • gb says:

      totally agree Simon. kinda hate when artists just sign something with a squiggle.
      (I mean what letter is that even above?!!)
      its nice to decipher *something* at least.

      side note. Dave Vanian has beautiful hand-writing.
      (and is super friendly as well)

    Personally I would have preferred some alternate versions or demos on the second disc rather than the 8 solo vocal tracks (+ there are 3 instrumentals).
    Still a good album though.

  11. TRACY says:

    Loving Dexys, love that coat.

  12. Kenny says:

    Not only is this a great bargain, the music is wonderful as well. Great versions of “The Town I Loved So Well” “Curragh Of Kildare” and Carrickfergus” The rest of the tracks are good too. Not sure if the solo vocals add anything but its still worth the money. As for the trousers….he’s worn worse on his album covers (i.e.”My Beauty”)

  13. andrew R says:

    Paul any chance of a similar look at the vinyl? The sig scribble ?? i thought would be a full set
    with maybe a pithy comment from Kev, very disappointing !

  14. Horslips says:

    I got my signed copy yesterday – thanks again for the heads up on the reasonably-priced “signed” copies Paul.

    It is a really nice package but I thought that the instrumental and vocal only tracks added little enough to the original versions.

  15. DaveM says:

    I thought too that the content was generous at the price and that other labels / artists should take a leaf from this set. The DVD is a good watch too.

  16. William says:

    Those trousers on their own should get a record deal!
