Gilbert O’Sullivan’s Great Performance At City Winery In New York Last Night

July 10, 2019

Gilbert O’Sullivan delivered a terrific show, at a great venue (City Winery 155 Varick Street in New York City) last night.

Time moved in beautiful pace, as Gilbert O’Sullivan’s music and storytelling brought me a great gift. It was one of travelling back, forward, accepting loss and looking onward and upward, all in one show. The performance was Mr. O’Sullivan’s first in New York since the 1970’s.

He both looked and sounded great, citing the life and passing of such greats as Jim Croce, Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew. O’Sullivan  talking of songs other than big hits and how he performs them, and most of all, clicked with the enthusiastic audience, performing his great music.

Tonight at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, there is the second and final United States based Gilbert O’ Sullivan show this year. Let’s hope and after last night’s great show, I think, he will be back.

We associate with the music, time marches inexorably on, I knew I would be moved.

The extent, however, was astoundingly positive. Mr. O’Sullivan’s timing, song sequence, dedications, and heartfelt words all combined to have me “back in that car,” checking on colleges and less “alone.” Gilbert’s seminal song “Alone Again” (Naturally) played on.

Not only did Gilbert O’Sullivan lead that not so easy “trip,” with his composure and beautiful songs (big hits such as “Clair,” “Get Down” others included “What’s in a Kiss?” a beauty, for example), he did so “Naturally!”

It was a fantastic show!
