Consumer Guide Reviews:

Dennis Coulson [Elektra, 1973]
Coulson exploits that natural catch in his voice, a hint of vibrato that walks the line between yearning and good cheer, to bridge his Scottish loyalties and his American stylistic referents--this is genuinely mid-Atlantic singing. But if you want to be an interpreter you'd better find interpretees who give you more to say than Gallagher & Lyle. High point: "Job on the Tyne," which he cocomposed. Hope he keeps trying. B-
