Gilbert O'Sullivan: Avery Fisher Hall, NYC
Lenny Kaye, Rolling Stone, 25 October 1973

So he assuredly was, and Gilbert O'Sullivan, making his New York City debut on the first leg of a scheduled six-week, 30-city tour, went on to self-deprecatingly drive the point home in the course of a well-planned and impeccably executed set in the ten-million-dollar donation hall once known as Philharmonic.
