Lloyd Bradley says that 'Now Appearing' by the Big Town Playboys "communicates through an obvious bawdy humour, suggesting that The Big Town Playboys are even more fun live".
Well Lloyd, you better believe it. I've seen them live four times (Manchester, Hazel Grove, Shrewsbury and Chester, all in England) and they are ALWAYS even better than the album.
The songs on this album had us dancing on the seats of Manchester's Band On The Wall club. I bought it on vinyl before the CD was available, then on CD. The only reason I don't see the BTP's more often is that I never know when or where to find them.
If you want R&B that can really take you to its heart, get Now Appearing. To enjoy it to its full, find the Playboys and see them live. It rocks.
