Album Review
Lucky For Some

"The Scotsman", 21 April 2006

ANOTHER powerful and heartfelt collection of songs from this most committed of singers, and a fine showcase for his guitar playing as well. Although a folk singer at heart, Gaughan draws equally directly on blues and rock. With the exception of Anna Mae, a song about the murder of a native-American activist, all the material is Gaughan's own, including an arrangement of a traditional song and a lovely instrumental. Topics include the loss of 1960s idealism, the chilling tale of a mercenary, and a couple of contrasting songs about the vagaries of the musical life.
