Big Jim Sullivan Plays Gilbert O'Sullivan.
Big Jim Sullivan was such a player. While his work on my songs such as We Will, No Matter How I Try and Why, Oh Why, Oh Why was special, not to mention the album he recorded of Sullivan Plays O'Sullivan, his acoustic work on Alone Again (Naturally) is masterful. The gifted guitarist I now work with, Bill Shanley, is the first to acknowledge this, performing Jim's solos himself at our concerts.
Big Jim Sullivan was a well-known session musician in his time and was asked by many bands including The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Lulu, The Kinks to name just a few. Going to a music school must have been a novel idea as Big Jim had been playing guitar on sessions since 1957, resulting in his presence on more UK hits than anyone else. After studying at the music school Big Jim Sullivan traded in his customary guitar for the sitar and created an uncanny fusion of Eastern and Western music on Sitar Beat. This album was originally released in the late 1960s, when the sitar and other Indian instruments enjoyed a certain degree of popularity in the West as 'exotic' flavors. The album features a mix of odes and originals with songs like "She's Leaving Home", "Whiter Shade Of Pale", "Sunshine Superman" and "Within Without You". 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
