I think T.V. Smith is probably the single most underrated songwriter of the last 50 years in terms of people who, lyrically, musically, deployed great songs consistently, always saying real things, always being true to themselves… I’m not sure there is anybody out there quite as overlooked and these days it’s sort of criminal for me that he’s considered the guy who wrote “Gary Gilmore’s Eyes,” which of course he is, and that’s a great song, but he’s written 150 great songs since then.

Thanks for this Uli. Great to read the whole interview as TV waxes on about how great TV is and how he loves Cast of Thousands.

Cheers.

You're welcome. Don't know how I'd found this (probably via a link on FB), but I knew immediately I'd put the link in here.  :)
