Gilbert O'Sullivan's best-selling and highly acclaimed debut album, remastered with 8 bonus tracks and a 20 page booklet with new sleevenotes, full lyrics, rare photos and memorabilia.
The first in Salvo's 'The Singer And His Songs' reissue programme of Gilbert O'Sullivan.
By the time Gilbert O'Sullivan's debut album Himself was released in August 1971, the UK record-buying public were already quite familiar with this singular composer-singer-pianist thanks to his debut single, `Nothing Rhymed' (October 1970). Tuneful and artful, emotive and poetic, this strangely affecting record alerted the listening world to a very unusual talent indeed.
However, as interesting as 'Nothing Rhymed' was, the public's alertness to Gilbert O'Sullivan was largely due to his image. With his flat cap, pudding-basin haircut and Charlie Chaplin jacket, Gilbert was simply unforgettable. The music press was understandably wary of such blatant publicity-seeking but the public, on the other hand, was amused, intrigued and baffled by this plaintive, piano-thumping Buster Keaton character, but most importantly, it was aware of him.
When Himself finally appeared in August 1971, the public's anticipation and appetite was stoked; the LP reached number 5 and stayed in the UK album charts for 86 weeks. Listening again forty years on to this ambitious, thoughtful, varied and intensely musical record, it's not hard to hear why the Melody Maker's Michael Watts called Gilbert, the only genuinely interesting and original new talent to appear in the Britain in the seventies.

Listening to this album is a bit of a trip in time too, particularly to heady days when Paul McCartney's solo/Wings work was beginning gain dominance. G O'S's songs have a few of Paul's mannerisms here, and tho' quite in tune with Paul's work, it is distinctive, holding its own.
Highlights include: "Nothing Rhymed", "Matrimony", "Houdini Said", "If I Don't Get You Back Again", and the last song, which bizarrely reminds me of the tv cartoon Arthur: "Doing the Best that I Can" with its nonsense chorus.
A good album for those who like off-kilter singer/songwriter/piano-player songs that are sometimes ridiculous, sometimes incredibly touching.
