brilliant band....sad reflection of what they were.
bunch of white boys from the land of deep fried Mars Bars. Somehow it works out more brilliantly than anyone could imagine. TOP eat your heart out !
No serious funk produced these days. It's real shame. Someone should let the secret out. Shallow, numb, money minded producers . It's good to be old sometimes !
They kind of fazed out after 'Showdown' in 69 and then came back in 75 with the disco influenced Soul City Walking. Much prefer the the funky stuff though.
I think that Paul Weller was so overawed he made a bit of a mess of it. He didn't do so well with Curtis covers with The Jam.................maybe he was embarassed. Love Paul Weller by the way !
1965 album of the same name with The Impressions. Same year that Lennon/McCartney were singing 'Help". Brilliant.
Always switches on my emotions.......every time I listen. That's Curtis !!
Soul royalty: singer, musician, songwriter (free of Berry Gordy and the like) of the 20th Century. 30 plus albums, independently and with the Impressions, plus the multitude of songs he wrote for other artistes. Recorded New World Order paralized. Well done brother.
Great album. Lucky enough to see them at the Lee Theatre in HK in 81.
Brilliant track. I believe 66 saw Chris, Dusty and Eric with the great 'O' himself before he sadly passed in December 67. The Pete was busy promoting blue eyed at the Mojo. I was 11, been a mod ever since, always will be !
what can you say, it's Ella singing Cole Porter. Aren't we so lucky to know how to appreciate the music and the voice. Sing the lyrics as you hear them, right or wrong who gives a s----.
