David Essex: Out On The Street (CBS) ****

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 16 October 1976

DAVID ESSEX has arrived at a most interesting junction in his career. Standing at the crossroads, his fourth studio album paints a versatile self-portrait of an artist strolling down several musical avenues. Not quite sure which direction to follow, he splits his time between frightening dark alleyways and more comfortable lover's quarters.
