Graham Gouldman – The Graham Gouldman Thing

First ever release on CD for future 10cc member's 1968 solo album

Trending Now

Long before he was 2.5cc, Graham Gouldman penned a clutch of classic English pop songs for the likes of The Yardbirds (“For Your Love”) and Herman’s Hermits (“No Milk Today”). Rendered in a pleasingly plaintive style and boasting state-of-the-’60s-art baroque’n’roll arrangements from future Zep bassist John Paul Jones, Gouldman’s songs evoke a time when lyricists could still write cute little domestic vignettes full of everyday imagery and girl-next-door yearning without a shred of self-consciousness. As competent and assured in their way as the hit versions.
