Walk Like a King - Rock & Reel Review
Updated: Nov 14, 2022
Thanks to Alan Clayson for this heartfelt review of Terry's Walk Like a King: Songs for Dylan Thomas.
"...certain lines, instanced by: "Manhattan stakes a claim on the moon" from his
The Last Chance Saloon, are on a par with those of Dylan, throughout proceedings describable as not so much country-rock as country-chanson, via the infusing of Clarke's own emotional vocabulary and biographical references."
"Terry's clear baritone elsewhere during sixteen selections which, while bringing forth immediate details, such as a steel guitar's ascending dissonance during the fade to Laugharne 68, and the title track's booming Duane Eddy via Luther Perkins solo, reveal more subtle musical and lyrical profundities with each succeeding spin."
