Hot on the heels of the Kursaals Flyers' own "Hit Records: Best Of" release, Sony Rewind have put out "Golden Mile" coupled with "Five Live Kursaals" on a single CD at a low, low price.
It's an essential purchase for many reasons and here are a few...
The full album version of the Kursaals' hit single "Little Does She Know" has even more of Mike (Womble) Batt's "everything including the kitchen sink" OTT production; if you dance the way I do you'll identify with "Two Left Feet" and its lovely lilting latin sound; smile and tap your (2 left?) feet to the infectious Dan Hicks/Chilli Willi swing of "Detroit Tin".
And then there's the bonus live album which gives us rawer renditions of many Kursaal favourites and a clutch of ace covers in the encore.
I'll give it 5 stars for the timeless "feel good" music but must state one gripe - that Sony should have taken time to commission some proper sleeve notes from Will Birch!
