Editorial Reviews

Hooba Dooba is the 2011 album from one of Ireland's finest singer-songwriters, Paul Brady. Brady played in Dublin based bands The Kult, The Rootzgroup, The Johnstons and Planxty and in a duo with Andy Irvine before going solo in 1978. This is his 15th solo effort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Here Kind Stranger. March 5, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Being a Paul Brady fan in the United States is difficult. First, you can't talk about Paul Brady because almost no one knows who you're talking about. Second, you never know when he has released a new album. Case in point, "Hooba Dooba". You have to look at sites like Wikipedia or Paul's own website just to keep up because there is no promotion in the States. Third, Van Morrison gets all the accolades even though Brady has been down the same road as Morrison and the two are native Irish.

It was 1991, and VH1 was playing the video for "Nobody Knows" from Paul's 1991 album "Trick Or Treat". I instantly liked the song and bought the album and became a fan. Twenty years later, I own all of Brady's albums except his first solo album, 1978's "Welcome Here Kind Stranger". As always, when preparing to list to a new album from an artist, I go back to the start and listen to every album the artist has released in chronological order prior to writing a review on their latest album. For me, that meant starting with Brady's first proper pop/folk/rock solo album, 1981's "Hard Station".

Let me just say that Paul has not lost any of his songwriting chops. You must know that his songs have been used by other famous artists such as Tina Turner and Bonnie Raitt. As each year passes, Brady only gets better and writing lyrics. However, since 1995's "Spirits Colliding", his musical arrangements have taken a hit. "Hooba Dooba" plus his last two albums, 2005's "Say What You Feel" and 2001's "Oh What A World", have all been lacking in cohesion and memorable melodies. I'd even go so far as to say that Brady is a singles artist rather than an album artist as most of his albums contain at least four or five songs that are really good mixed in with five that are just okay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a listen March 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Good CD, some great songs on here. Theres also some filler material unfortuately. Thats what you get with Brady at times. Lookings at his body of work he's a great talent. Only a few of his CD's carry that greatness from beginning to end.
