Dave Doyle reviewed Tin Pan Alley Vol. 2 for The Syncopated Times.

He wrote,

“Tin Pan Alley Vol. 2 is more of what Greg gave us with Tin Pan Alley Vol.1—and that’s no bad thing. The track list is again refreshingly rare, with a nice mix of standards and lesser-heard material. “St. Louis Blues” is one favorite, stepping away from Greg’s normally light, upbeat fare to showcase his surprisingly powerful voice and impressive ability to hold a long note. (He is a big fan of the pre-amplification bel canto technique.)

“You Are My Sunshine”—more typical of Greg’s sweet singing style and accompanied only by a softly twiddling guitar, sprinkles of trumpet and smatterings of washboard—is delightfully sentimental. In fact it brought a happy tear to my eye, being a lovely rendition of a song my mum used to sing me as a nipper.

Then there’s the likes of “La Paloma”—a nineteenth-century ballad by Spanish composer Sebastián Yradier, presented here in its German form (with lyrics by Helmut Käutner). Put this one on, close your eyes and you’re in a Hamburg café, drinking Liebfraumilch with Wehrmacht soldiers on leave with their sweethearts. Greg begins another Spanish classic, “Amapola,” in its original language first, before he switches to English—is there no end to this man’s talents?”
