Goble, Graham (Encounter) - 1993 Nautilus




ARTIST: Goble, Graham (Encounter)
ALBUM: Nautilus
LABEL: Castle Communications
SERIAL: CSC 7100
YEAR: 1993

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Graham Goble - guitars, keyboards, bass, keyboards, programming * Steve Wade - vocals * Stephen Housden - lead guitar * John Barrett - saxophones

TRACK LISTING: 01 I Can't Eat, Can't Sleep * 02 Til Tonight * 03 Full Circle * 04 She Tells You, You Tell Me * 05 Addicted To You * 06 You Never Cry * 07 I've Been Broken * 08 Into The Silence * 09 My Hearts Desire * 10 It's Over, At Last


Background
Let's take a rare excursion into ex Little River Band guitarist Graham Goble's solo career. As with his previous outfit, the material here is as melodic as it comes. Graham plays nearly all of the instruments, though gets some specific help from the gifted singer Steve Wade. plus fellow LRB guitar slinger Stephen Housden. The songs on 'Nautilus' have been given the superlative production 'treatment'. Airy, full of atmosphere, and musical drama. 'Exquisite' is a good choice of word I think, with the whole thing produced in Graham's own studios in Melbourne. You can detect that Graham has spent many hours getting this album 'just right' and it shows.


The Songs
The musical arrangements on their own would sound great, but with Wade adding his John Farnham/Jack Jones (Southern Sons) flavoured vocals, the songs literally spring to life. 'Can't Sleep Can't Eat' is a bright start to the album, happy and uplifting. 'Full Circle' is a stop/start affair, with staccato keyboard passages through the middle, while the pairing of 'Into The Silence' and 'My Hearts Desire' are ensconsed in the land of AOR, the latter in particular is a superb track. Two 'must listen to' tracks are the lyrical anguish of 'She Tells You, You Tell Me' (a song about cheating and lying), and the subtle drama of 'You Never Cry', a song about relationship struggles. Both tracks despite the lyrical content, are gloriously rich arrangement-wise.


In Summary
Any follower of quality melodic rock would do well to invest some time trying to track down Goble's albums. 'Nautilus' and the 'Stop' album two years later, (again featuring Wade and Housden), are both worthwhile acquistions to your collection.

The news about Jimi just got posted on their official FB page. Quite a shock!

R.I.P. Jimi Jamison. Surely the consumate AOR legend.

Like Nick states, great to see AOK get release out, even if 20+ years too late. Heard there's a prob with liner notes though.

Will be good to see Rob and the boyz get this out, especially as AOK just missed the boat back in the day. Good luck lads.
