Jim Lea - Therapy (2 discs)

A 2 disc set of self-penned songs from ex-Slade bassist Jim Lea
 
The first disc is a reissue of Jim’s critically acclaimed studio album – most impressively, the vast majority of instruments featured are played by Jim
 
Includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks: 21st Century Thing, Thank God It's Friday Right Now  and Am I The Greatest Now
 
The second disc was recorded live at the Robin R&B Club in 2002 and features versions of Slade hits Cum On Feel The Noize and Mamma Weer All Crazee Now alongside classic tracks Hey Joe, I Am The Walrus, You Really Got Me, Substitute and Wild Thing
 
Jim's immense skill as a songwriter is evident throughout, alongside his much overlooked musicianship

“On being asked to add more tracks to the album, I managed to dig up a song called 21st Century Thing. It was found on a cassette of demos which had never been worked on. After a short attempt to re-record it, I gave up and put the demo version on the album which seemed to fit the vibe just fine. Then came something from the digital era in the shape of Thank God It’s Friday Right Now. Coming up the rear is a pop thrash track Am I The Greatest Now. I am proud of the album and found the public reaction very edifying.”    – Jim Lea commenting on the bonus tracks

Jim Lea is most notable for playing bass guitar, keyboards, violin, guitar, and singing backing vocals in Slade and for co-writing all of their hits.
