"Lead Me to the Water" features Brooker writing both music AND lyrics for an album for the first time. Although not quite as lyrically adept as his frequent Procol Harum collaborator Keith Reid, Brooker does a fine job at tackling both which results in an album that is both musically adventerous as well as lyrically more personal. Perhaps that's one of the reasons why Brooker's soulful delivery is so powerful here but either way Brooker is in top form.
The remastering of this terrific reissue is quite nice plus we also get a bonus track recorded at the same sessions. The liner notes give us a peek behind the making of the album and are terrific as well.
Gary Brooker has recorded much wondrous music in his long career, but this CD remains his most underrated and enigmatic effort. Despite being largely overlooked, it is by far the best of his solo work.
No Keith Reid needed here. Gary wrote the music and the lyrics. If you like Brooker's voice and style, you are going to love this CD. Among my favorites are Mineral Man, Another Way, the fabulous title cut, and Sympathy For The Hard of Hearing, so evocative of the hardships of war. But the best of all is The Angler, a bewitching tale of elemental struggle between man and fish on Oregon's Deschutes River. The CD is so good, one really has to wonder why it never got any promotion.
Brooker is ably backed on Lead Me To The Water by a number of well-known musicians including Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, George Harrison, and Tim Renwick. This is certainly one CD you should buy while its still available.
Note: September 2011, I just picked up the remastered edition of this great recording. Those considering obtaining a copy will be pleased to know that not only does it sound better than ever, there is now an excellent soulful bonus track called Badlands which is a worthy addition to the original. Also, the new edition comes with an informative booklet that contains the all-important lyrics. Get this now before it goes out of circulation again!
