5.0 out of 5 stars So good... yet so underrated 11 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A New Flame by Simply Red is probably my second favourite release by the ginger soul-master of Manchetser, the first being the incredible Stars. The reason why i believe this album is underrated is simply because there is so much exellent music on here which is overlooked. The main few songs that are associated with A New Flame (Its Only Love, If You Don't Know Me By Now and A New Flame) are used to judge the album, while the real, solid tracks are simply overlooked. Songs like Enough and Love Lays Its Tune display the genius talents of Hucknall and Simply Red. A New Flame may be Hucknalls most varied work to date, dabbling in reggae beats in More, going all out pop in Its Only Love, and telling very accurate tales of life in Love Lays Its Tune and Enough. This may not of appealed to the mainstream young generation, but it can be accessed by everyone who enjoys well written pop played by a well crafted band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album classic! 8 April 2010
By FAMOUS NAME VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This was one of my favourite Albums from 'Simply Red'. It features one of my fav. Singles (the title Track) plus two other hits - including their second Number Two with: 'If You Don't Know Me By Now'. It was their first Number One Album - their second being their following release: 'Stars' which really marked their territory as 'here to stay'.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love this CD and all it's tracks. Not a huge fan when they were more currant and didn't realise Simpy Red sung some of them! But, love this music, the words, the beat, some to relax to and others to just brighten your day, fab.

5.0 out of 5 stars The peak so far! 22 Sep 2001
Format:Audio CD
Of all the Simply Red albums, this is the one that gels the best as a whole. Often overlooked in place of "Stars", I found that album slightly laboured and over-polished. "A New Flame" is superb from start to finish. Well played and produced and there is no weak song to be found. Even the "lesser" tracks, such as "To Be With You" stand tall. There are so many lush moments to found, it's hard to pick highlights. A joy from start to finish, it's hard to imagine him topping this overlooked Great Soul Album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good service but puzzled 8 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This product arrived a day ahead of predicted delivery which was great. I've bought other CDs from Amazon and had access to the MP3 version but unfortunately that isn't the case with A New Flame. My oversight in that I didn't notice this so will be more vigilant in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Manchester to Monza 12 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD
By the mid 1980’s, mainstream music had drifted into a banal and turgid cul-de-sac. The scene was set for someone with talent and a spark of originality to step forward. Mick Hucknall had the voice, the songs, the band and he was more than ready to grab the opportunity. In 1985 Picture Book went into the stratosphere and Simply Red became virtual mega-stars. Forward to 1989 and the band release their third album A New Flame. Inexplicably, this album did not receive quite the same level of attention or acclaim that was afforded to Picture Book and Stars. I don’t understand why because it’s a fine record.

The album opens with It’s only Love. The languid grove of the original tune (sung by Barry White) is replaced by a harder funk edge with more urgency and a fantastic vocal performance by Mick. A New Flame ups the tempo and there is an element of theatricality in the structure and delivery of the track. You’ve Got It is the first of two collaborations on the album between Mick and Lamont Dozier. It’s a nice, subtle tune beautifully delivered by Mick in his own inimitable (blue-eyed soul) style. Turn It Up is the second song on the album co-written by Mick and Lamont Dozier. Music history and jazz in particular, is littered with examples of artistic collaborations which produced unmemorable results. Happily this is an exception. Turn it Up is a great song. The lyrics may be forgettable, but when a song’s this good it doesn’t matter. The musicians are on top form and the grove is irresistible. Again Mick shows us the full range of his vocal talents - a Rolls Royce with Sinatra timing.

Love Lays It’s Tune is another gorgeous song in much the same vein as Track 2. If You don’t Know Me By Now couldn’t possibly fail with Mick at the helm.
