Joe Nolan’s recordings are superbly produced and engagingly arranged with generous helpings of organ, squeezebox and harmonica. Nolan’s voice has an immediately likeable, old-soul appeal that gives each of his tunes a smile-inducing, sometimes funny, appeal. On “San Francisco Girl” he sketches the physical and mental qualities of a gallery of different women he observes on the city’s streets. The picaresque “Fat Lady and the Clown” is a bittersweet song of unrequited love. An ideal candidate for film & TV consideration is “Young and Beautiful” where Nolan’s winning persona, aided by gorgeous gusts of accordion, reminds us all of the often overlooked sweetness of everyday life.
