4 stars This album was recorded in West London on March 10th 1995, with Kevin supported by The Wizards Of Twiddly. Kevin has always been 'cult', and this has meant that the crowd there to see him there that night were hugely enthusiastic, as he went through a set that features songs from the length of his career. This is not about playing material at breakneck speed or at high volume, but more about reflecting and feeling the emotion.

Kevin has a distinctive voice, and it is best heard on songs such as the superb "Lady Rachel". This sounds like a very personal and atmospheric gig, and it is a great introduction to his work. This is the first Market Square release that I have come across but hopefully it will not be the last. A very informative booklet, along with photos makes this a strong release.
