Jim Lea - Therapy (Expanded Edition) reissue album review
Cum on feel the pensive musings
As an inspired writer, versatile musician and violinist inspired by Stephane Grappelli, Jim Lea was the dark horse of Slade. Noddy had the voice and sitcom charm, Dave had the boots and the Bacofoil suits, but Lea brought the songs that brought the noise. When his Slade days ended in 1991 he studied psychotherapy and became quite the existentialist, mentioning in his sleeve-notes here such themes as self-exploration and the human psyche.
