4 stars The Living Room Concert is effectively that, and the closest thing to a live album among his recordings. Known to have left Genesis just prior to Nursery Chryme due to stagefright, he even sounds a little nervous initially on this, but soon settles in to a fine performance of a number of stand-out pieces of his, including 'Which Way the Wind Blows', originally sung by Phil Collins on the original Geese and the Ghost collection. This would be a good starting point for people interested in getting a taste of his work.

4 stars Not only is this totally "unplugged", it's as intimate as you can get! Living Room Concert really feels like Ant his playing a number of songs just for you, in his . . . living room! This is retrospective album of his most loved songs. How he could remember all the strange tunings and chord progressions, I'll never know (Maybe he wrote them down - Einstein!). I would not recommend this album as your introduction to the sublimely brilliant world of A.P. But if you are a seasoned veteran, this album is a "must have". Completely devoid of post- production "improvements" and studio "enhancements", this album will give you a window into one of the most sensitve and thoughtful musicians of our day.
