The Guest List

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Martin Belmont is best-known as a guitar-slinger, playing lead for Ducks Deluxe, Graham Parker's the Rumour, and Nick Lowe's Cowboy Outfit, so the idea of him playing the same role on his 2009 solo album, The Guest List, is an inspired one.
