Product Description

Product Description

The debut Rinaldi Sings album, `What's It All About?', announced the arrival of cult singer/songwriter Steve Rinaldi at the grooviest of parties, and now, with `Bingo', he intends to show that he's got what it takes to stick around until the last taxi has been ordered. On this collection he offers the upbeat sunny pop of 'You Take Me There', the swinging Hammond Organ instrumental of the title track, plus the Vaudevillian honky tonk of `The Only Show In Town'. There's also a nod of recognition in the direction of a couple of style icons of the past, with 'Goodbye Steve McQueen' and the melancholy celebration of the genius that was George Best, on the epic 'Where Did It All Go Wrong Mr Best?' If you have a preference for pop music with melodic brass riffs and soaring violins, then just cry `Bingo'!

About the Artist

"Welcome to the surrealist splendour of Rinaldi Sings," wrote the NME when the smart-suited Steve Rinaldi first strolled on to the live stages of London in 2004. Since then, more and more fans have been tuning into the "Cockernee-toned pop" of this eccentric singer/songwriter. With a sound that combines the blue-eyed pop-soul of the late Sixties with the swagger of a Vaudevillian showman, Steve Rinaldi has filtered his taste for the eclectic and the obscure through the experience of a lifetime of listening to fine, orchestrated pop music. And what he has ended up with is Rinaldi Sings, a collision of elaborate indie pop charm and Carnaby Street high camp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Catchy pop with mod sensibilities 23 Jun 2008
By S Jones
Format:Audio CD
Firstly - how can there be a review of an album that isn't out yet? Could it be that this is simply PR hype or through an illegally downloaded copy? Actually, the album has been available direct from the Rinaldi Sings website since June, but isn't on general release until August.

So - what's it all about? This is the second release from Steve Rinaldi, and like its predecessor, is firmly located in mid 60s Swinging London. Unashamedly retro, these mod/soul songs manage to convey that era without ever straying into pastiche. Like the first album, we have driving brass and swirling organ, supporting Rinaldi's vocals, which I've described elsewhere as a cross between Steve Marriott and Tony Christie.

Stand-out songs: "Come as you are, you're a star" with its exubarent energy, "Where did it all go wrong Mr Best" which combines melancholy with musicality, and the punningly titled "End of An Error". Overall though this is a great summery pop soundtrack and Rinaldi Sings deserves a much wider audience than its current base of mods.

So why only 4 stars? my only criticism is that the Rinaldi sound hasn't progressed much from the debut album, and - perhaps in the way that the Small Faces moved in to psychedelia and The Who into rock opera - the next album can't simply stay on Carnaby Street
