Anonymity has its benefits, particularly when Paul Carrack revisits his native Sheffield. Suitably attired in his trademark pork pie hat, he’s as comfortable talking to the proprietor of the local sweet shop he frequented as a child as he is performing to sell out crowds.

The man with the golden voice is a former member of Ace, Squeeze, Roxy Music, Mike & The Mechanics and has a long list of hits.

The singer’s soulful voice is known to millions and is the creator of such classics as Ace’s ‘How Long,’ Mike & The Mechanics’ ‘The Living Years,’ ‘Over My Shoulder’ and ‘Silent Running,’ Squeeze’s ‘Tempted’ and solo landmarks like ‘Satisfy My Soul,’ ‘I Live On A Battlefield’ and ‘Eyes Of Blue.’ He also wrote The Eagles’ hits ‘Love Will Keep Us Alive’ and ‘I Don’t Want To Hear Any More.’

I personally own nine of his albums, yet for all his credibility among the musical cognoscenti he is still largely an unknown entity, and far from achieving household name status. What irony therefore, that my ears should be assaulted early most mornings with all that disposable pop fodder issued by singers who are flatter than a plasma TV and twice as sharp. Four minutes of Mr Carrack would set me up so nicely for the day ahead.

Paul Carrack - The Man with the Golden Voice (BBC Documentary) 2012

Sheffield’s Paul Carrack has slowly and subtly become a national institution, spending nearly three months touring the UK each year.

This affectionate documentary traces Carrack’s musical journey from Warm Dust and Ace through Squeeze, Roxy Music and Mike and the Mechanics, to his successful latter-day solo career, with intimate access to the likeable, somewhat diffident yet determined Carrack and thoughtful contributions from friends, family and peers including Nick Lowe, Chris Difford and others.

It’s hard to believe much of anything we’re told these days on television, yet there’s seemingly an abundance of sincerity in the testimonies on display here. Perhaps Carrack truly is as likeable as they say; he certainly comes over that way in this programme.
