New Zealand folksinger/songwriter Paul Ubana Jones album of mostly original songs (he covers Gil Scot-Heron's 'Home is Where the Hatred Is' and Memphis Slim's 'Life is Like That') was issued in 1992. His issues are those of the worker, the lover, the thinker. Jones' self accompaniment on electric guitar is sophisticated, spirited and very funky; his voice is simultaneously big and sweet, and his songs are highly personal. (From 'Song to Jimi': 'I'd cry to the blues of Jimi Hendrix' sound / And I'd look from a distance to his whispering crown / Preaching that 'message of love' all around.') His performances are hard-hitting and memorable -- a powerful antidote to the commonplace.
