Coyne , Kevin / Brendan Croker - Life Is Almost Wonderful CD + DVD

SKU 21-MIG 02372
“The CD "Life Is Almost Wonderful" was only sold at concerts by the duo they played together back in 2002 in Belgium and Netherlands. If they had set out to be invisible, Coyne and Croker couldn't have planned it much better. But they were two artists not bothered about record company deals, distribution and other practical matters. Never mind, the main thing is this marvellous acoustic album.
Although "recorded by post" (Croker sent the basic guitar tracks and Kevin improvised the lyrics on top), the album is an amazing symbiosis, as if the two were on exactly the same wavelength. There are too many great titles to detail here. "Life Is Almost Wonderful" is a masterpiece where Coyne, with Croker's acoustic backing (some lavish guitar-harp included), conjures up wartime memories, the '50s of his childhood, catholic schools and other peculiar subjects such as the multicoloured eyes of parrots and the story of an English clerk trying to dig through his garden to Australia.
The album is completed by a bonus DVD with insights from their 2002 concerts in Leffinge, Belgium and Hardenberg, Netherlands, which have never been available on DVD before.”
