Thursday, 01 January 1987
Small clipping from an unknown magazine. Review by Charlotte Franklin

Anyone expecting Willson-Piper's first solo album to be like his recent performances is in for a disappointment. While the beauty of his shows was in their simplicity - the troubadour approach - the record is effective for other reasons. It is essentially a man playing ith his toys, and comes complete with a sixteen page user-friendly guide to home recording. The booklet describes his exceitement at getting his mitts on a drum machine or the first time, and the creative use of a little appreciated musical instrument in the Sydney Morning Herald. As to the music - it s definitely enhanced by the roughness of a four-track recording in  way that all the stuid gimmickry in the world cold not achieve. The ballads ooze emotion with a rawness that makes the man sound like a mere mortal, for God's sake. The flaws actually add to the record instead of detracting from it, but yes, it does get a trifle self-indulgent towards the end. Such is life.
