My comments:

"Basil" is a collection of Joey Molland's private recordings of songs written over the past 25 years.  This was not intended as a major release, but obviously more or less "done for his fans". The tracks vary a lot in both quality and sound/production. Some of the songs are really "home-recordings" while others could be released as fully produced album-tracks. There are a lot of typical Joey-rockers; some of them suffer from strained vocals and poor sound, but there are also good tracks. Mirrors is a real good rocker that may turn up on Joey's forthcoming album. Among the ballads and slower tracks Isn't That a Dream is a favourite.

My favourites:Isn't That a Dream and Mirrors

Other very good songs: Borderline and It's True

Of 10 possible stars I would give this album:4
