Gilbert O'Sullivan

Tony Norman, New Musical Express, 6 May 1972

THE MUSIC MAN sits there sipping tea and talking music.  Although he has always been a bit of a loner, he is certainly not an introvert.  A little shy perhaps, and wary but also frank and sometimes amusing.  You feel he might be more comfortable getting his points across to you if he were seated behind a piano.  After all, that's all Gilbert O'Sullivan does in his songs, you know.  Talks to you.
