The album comprises twelve songs with ten terrific originals by Joe, including three thrilling big band numbers: Nobody Cares Like Me , Pocket Song and a new version of Gold On Silver , previously heard on Songs On Film Live.Joe's seamless ability to mix contemporary style with a fond nostalgia for the Golden Era of Gene Kelly and Louis Prima means his old soul finds a perfect match in these new songs .Joe's trademark catchy hooks and clever lyrics (full of intricate rhymes and clever twists reminiscent of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter) create an instant familiarity.Joe also duets with Liane Carroll on a wistful cover of Brian Wilson's I Just Wasn't Made For These Times , one of the album's two non-original songs.

The pressing is on 180 gram vinyl and is manufactured by the prestigious Pallas firm in Germany, which is highly regarded by vinyl lovers everywhere.
