REVIEW: SANDS OF TIME [Pete Kent]

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Regular visitors to ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] will know that it is a great pleasure of mine to also occasionally introduce and recommend talented local artistes to you too. One of the plus points of last weeks Brewood Music Festival was to witness an astounding exhibition of fingerstyle guitar craft by Wolverhampton's very own Pete Kent in support of The Trevor Burton Band. His performance was so good that I got hold of a copy of Pete's debut album "Sands Of Time" [Revolver Music #REVXD2016] for a listen.

If you are also a fan of Mike Oldfield, Gordon Giltrap and/or Lindsey Buckingham, then this eleven [11] track release may well appeal to you. With two [2] unique covers of Level 42's "Something About You" and The Police's "Roxanne" nestled in amongst nine [9] of Pete's own compositions, this is an excellent showcase with the title track, "Postman's Knock", "Soul Mates", "Slipstream" and "The Spiral" particularly impressing. "Believe Me Now" ... It's a great record to listen to with the headphones on and it's a great record to have as a companion in your car too! [8/10]

Trax: [1] "Postman's Knock" [2:57]; [2] "Sands Of Time" [4:41]; [3] "Soul Mates" [3:38];
[4] "Something About You" [4:15]; [5] "14th Of May" [4:22]; [6] "Slipstream" [3:34];
[7] "Roxanne" [3:13]; [8] "Sea Of Stones" [2:42]; [9] "Sunshower" [3:41];
[10] "With These Hands" [2:07]; [11] "The Spiral" [2:54]
