Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Judging by the boudoir innuendo of the title and Marti Pellows' dashingly ruffled appearance on the sleeve (the shagged-out Financial Advisor on-the-pull look), Between the Covers could be misinterpreted as an album aimed at maturer ladies who hanker after cheeky chappies but who'd probably rather prefer an unproblematic night in with the choccies and a pulp weepie. Actually, Between the Covers--cover versions of some of Marti Pellow's favourite songs, from James Taylor and Stevie Wonder through to such curmudgeonly charmers as Leonard Cohen is neither stuffed with blushing love odes nor does it pretend to be a jolly Robbie Williams-type thing. The former Wet Wet Wet pin-up has had his ups-and-downs but his stoical re-emergence and fresher state of mind is reflected, rather obviously, in numbers such as Paul Weller's "Brand New Start", the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" and Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands"; songs that either espouse optimism or the probity of loyalty, friendship and familial strength. While Pellow's stark version of Joni Mitchell's "River" ("an optimistic song" he says, "depressing enough to bring tears to the eyes of Santa Claus" says everybody else) is cold and beautiful. Other numbers show a little too much respect (his rendition of the Pretenders' "Brass in Pocket" is as faithful as a nun), but when Pellow grabs a song by the privates and squeezes tightly, as on the blazing, string-drenched soul stomp through Neil Young's previously brittle "Lotta Love" it really is worth it. --Kevin Maidment

I really like the music from Wet Wet Wet and Marti Pellow and this album has some very good songs: "Follow you follow me", "A lot of love", "Fire and rain" and "Brass in pocket" are great songs while the other ones are a little too dull! So Marti should release more stuff of his own which is to my mind simply great (like "Smile"!)
But 4 Stars are okay for this album!

What can I say - a fantastic singer with a fantastic album. He has a very unique sound and the songs he covers in this album are excellently done. Follow You Follow Me is the best on there. I would highly recommend this album both for Wet Wet Wet Fans, Marti Pellow fans and people that want to listen to a quality album by someone who can REALLY sing.
Brilliant.

This is the best cd I have bought in years since I bought it the first time years ago. It is still a favorite. Trying to make a copy to play in my car was so difficult --- there are no songs that I wanted to eliminate. I remember playing this cd over and over again and guess what -- pretty sure that will happen again.
I think it will be the first cd I actually wear out.
Love it !!

A bargin getting cd and dvd together not many albums are sold like this which is a shame. It arrived on time and was put through my letterbox which is always a good thing instead of leaving with others and outside.
