THUD, while not original in approach, was a solo effort much on par with earlier solo efforts by folks like Paul McCartney, Al Kooper, Emmit Rhodes, and Todd Rundgren. These solo efforts, I always felt, best give expression to the artist's, in this case, tortured soul. Gilbert expresses that longing for the recognition of his efforts in songs like WAITING and SHRUG.
A gifted musician, Kevin Gilbert, apparently was a self-taught Cellist. If you purchase the THUD CD try and get the issue with the bonus CD, if only for the cover of KASHMIR. Gilbert really does make the classic Zeppelin tune his own. I have played THUD for family and friends and some of the tunes have left them in emotional shambles. TEA FOR ONE is the anthem for all who have longed for love. Despite his tragic end, we can only hope that more people discover the genius of Kevin Gilbert.

|Kevin was a Mozart in our own time.||
George- You said everything that needed to be said.
Once in awhile a talented artist comes down the pike that shows true brillance and pulls us in.
I can only imagine what Kevin would have released since his untimely passing.
