Jackie Leven - The Mystery of Love is Greater Than the Mystery of Death

Jackie Leven remains something of a cult figure. The Scottish singer/songwriter began his career in the late 1960s on the folk circuit and found later success with his new wave band Doll By Doll. He would later release a whole clutch of albums as a solo artist. This re-release of his second album marks the 10th anniversary of his death and it remains a revelation, a wide-screen exploration of folky soul and humanity. If you’ve not yet succumbed to Leven’s charms then this is the perfect jumping in point. GM
