•“When I listen to Paul sing, it’s frightening. I hear Caetano Veloso’s great songwriting skills of consciousness. He has Jorge Ben warmth, and depth musically with just a pinch of Bob Marley’s yearning thrown in for good measure. I even feel some Don Mclean seeping through his pores.” Maurice Edwards (M4)
