Steve Taylor, Limelight
(Sparrow SPR 1118);
Producers: Steve Taylor and Keith Bessey.

Taylor's live performance at the Greenbelt festival in England is captured here with seven songs from his previous albums and a duet with Sheila Walsh (David Edwards' "Not Gonna Fall Away"). Though the mix is punchy enough, the overall sound of the album is a bit thin, due perhaps to limited instrumentation in his band. Still, a good introduction to this terrific tunesmith.
