Dennis O’Brien, Still In The Same Dream (1980)
Dennis O’Brien, owner of Wellington’s Slow Boat Records was once Dennis O’Brien: Singer/Songwriter. And this is one of his albums. I like this. I’ve had it for a while – you can get a career overview on CD – and that’s decent too but I really like this album. I’ve grown to like it more with time actually…it wasn’t music I grew up with at all so I’ve had to hear it already knowing the person that created it. Dennis is a scholar and gent so this would get a pass mark just for that. But now I know the album and like it for what it is as well. Here’s my chat I had with Dennis a couple of years back for my podcast.
