LES SHELLEYS - The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise

by James Bray Rating:7 Release Date:2010-11-12

'The World is Waiting for the Sunrise' is a sweet little song. Les Shelleys version of this popular song is like a lullaby, an ode to a simpler time. The simple melodies and minimal instrumentation work well together and the song feels reassuringly familiar. It's earnest and pretty but I'm not sure if Les Shelley's brand of grass roots americana works so well in the format of a single.

For all it's optimistic charm, this little ditty is just a bit short on content. However, the b-side, 'Oh Babe, It Ain't No Lie' is more substantial and it's probably a better introduction to Les Shelley's lo-fi, California country-music than 'The World is Waiting for the Sunrise'.
