Glitter and Doom the latest live album would be a good intro, saw him in Edinburgh last year, gig was magical, waited over twenty years for that one,only downside was siting across from Ricky Ross from Deacon Blue on the train home to Glasgow.
As above, Asylum years, original vinyl version has more tracks than the current CD, Franks Wild Years, Raindogs, Swordfish & Trombones, Big Time is a cracking live album, good concert film as well on VHS, wish they would rerelease it on DVD.
I love One from the Heart its a great album but crap film, sings with Crystal Gayle, bit different than the rest of his stuff, Broken Bicycles is a good un.
Tracks I like are Step Right Up, Jockey Full of Bourbon, Tom Trauberts Blues, Whats he Building in there?, Make it Rain, Broken Bicylces, Kentucky Avenue.
Plays himself in Terry Gillians The Imagination of Dr Parasamous, good movie.
Started his career playing with Barry Manilow and Bette Midler in bath houses apparently.
Man is a legend, respect.
