I held off for a long time checking out Georgie Fame, but now I realize what I was missing. This is not just another white psychadelic era British bluesman mod rocker guy riding on the heals of the enormous influence of Jimmy Smith/Booker T. in the 60's - - the guy's a stylist. Apparently he tooked tunes he liked, and sang and arranged them well, very well, and wasn't afraid to venture into whatever territory he liked. From swinging rock and roll to disco, the album includes his takes on everything from Vocalese to Memphis Soul, and very convincingly. Hearing a guy doing a Booker T. tune one minute, a rock and roll calypso number the next, bebop singing the next and my favorite Bobby Womack tune Daylight the next can be a bit freaky... yet the tightness, energy and rockin' swing is all there and it works (even though I think it was a bit retarded of him to replace the proper word Z - - pronounce Zee, with ZED on Sunny... gosh, I get so annoyed everytime I hear the word Zed... its Zee, Zee, Zee as in Zebra, not Zedbra.) Enough nitpicking... the arrangements and playing are great. Highly personalized too... he does some very funny and subtle things when he's really wound up. Though lesser known in the US, I'd have to say that he's definitely in a category all of his own !
