How To Make Gravy
How To Make Gravy | Paul Kelly
2 posts | 2 read | 1 reading
Paul Kelly is a uniquely gifted storyteller. For thirty years he has written songs of uncommon directness about everything from love and land rights to cricket and cooking. 'Before Too Long', 'To Her Door', 'Leaps And Bounds', 'Don't Start Me Talking', 'Dumb Things', 'From Little Things Big Things Grow', 'How To Make Gravy' his songs connect generations of listeners across the country. Now Kelly has written the memoir everyone hoped he would. How to Make Gravy mirrors the structure of his legendary A to Z shows, where he performs around a hundred of his songs alphabetically over four nights. Taking the lyrics of those songs as starting points in this book, he tells stories of his life the highs and lows of performing, the art of songwriting, being on the road with the band, tales of his childhood, family, friends and fellow musicians. All illuminate Kelly's wide sources of inspiration, offering an unequalled portrait of the creative mind. Playful and honest, insightful and intimate, How to Make Gravy is an irresistible reflection on both the big and little things in life. Kelly's new recordings of the A to Z songs, stripped back to their essentials as solo or duo performances, are available digitally and in a companion CB boxed set that included a 64-pages booklet of photographs.

I sent this to my Mum with the caption “kill me now” and she just replied “hahaha 🤪”

😐 if I had to name three things that I despised learning about in high school (and I still high key hate them) was this song, Tim Winton and T. S. Eliot.

CarolynM I‘m so glad it‘s not just me. The love for this song completely baffles me. I‘m pretty lukewarm about Paul Kelly generally. 2mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @CarolynM, I‘d say I was ice cold on Paul Kelly generally. Always nice to not be alone in the unpopular opinion corner 😉😂 2mo

#Maybookflowers #Musicaltitles Most of these rock bio's belong to my husband, but a few of them are mine. Paul Kelly, Rufus and Jeff Buckley for instance. And Bruce's Born To Run is absent because it's still on hub's TBR shelf.

Abailliekaras Loved Life! Similar Springsteen & Dylan situation in my husband's books ... Lots of men! 🙄 5y
MrsMalaprop @Abailliekaras Yep, a total bloke fest. 5y
Suet624 Jeff and Rufus. Sigh. 5y
