Martin Stephenson & The Daintees: Gladsome Humour & Blue (Kitchenware/London)

Len Brown, New Musical Express, 9 April 1988

STEPHENSON BUILDS bridges. Between love and hate, between cradle and grave, between folk and pop, between the past and the present. He surveys the world from beneath his pork-pie hat, grinning at the good times, sadly shrugging off the bad. That's Gladsome Humour & Blue, with the emphasis on blue.
