Well what can you say about Makin Time, one of the best mod bands of the eighties.
This album should be a classic, just like it's predecessor Rhythm and Soul. which alas was as far as I know not released on cd.
The rich sound of the Hammond organ, featuring the undoubtable talents of organist Fay Hallam.
Most of the tracks on this album are on the said above. The ones that stand out for me are "Here is my number"," Take what you can get", and a brilliant version of Elvis
Costello's "Pump it up". With the bonus of the 12" versions on it it is well worth the buy.

I only got to see Makin' Time live once but they were one of the best live acts I have ever seen. This release is long over due and gathers together their debut album "Rhythm & Soul" (which was only ever released on CD in Japan) and their 3 singles which came out on the Countdown Mod label.
It still surprises me that Makin' Time never made an impact on the charts as they were one of the best bands around at the time. This CD is full of great tunes like "Where The Rhythm Takes You", "Here Is My Number", "The Girl That Touched My Soul", "Honey" and a cracking cover of Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up".
I would like to see Big Beat reissue Makin' Time's second album "No Lumps Of Fat Or Gristle Guaranteed" as it is even better than "Rhythm & Soul".

I love music with a big sound: I like to hear crystal clear vocals, steely refreshing guitars, loud, resonant keyboard playing, and madman Moon drumming. Not much to ask is it?
Thing is, it's usually a struggle. You can usually find a music with one or maybe two of the above, but all four?
Enter Makin' Time.

Ignorantly and unfairly consigned to the comatose 'mod' cult (along with another of my faves Secret Affair), and despite being completely brilliant, Makin' Time released two poorly-received albums, a handful of singles, and disappeared.
That their ultimate failure,, sales-wise, might have something to do with them being signed to the chronic and immobile Stiff Records is a hurtful truth not lost on me. Possibly the label with the worst roster of groups EVER, Makin' Time were always going to be up against it in that plant-pot company.

But in talent terms, they were red-hot. When firing on all cylinders, as on their debut album 'Rhythm and Soul' (pretty much all of which is included on this compilation), they could whip it up with the best of 'em.
Words like 'raging', 'soaring' and 'breathless' spring to mind; a joyful singing-ringing tree of youthful roar and commitment. That fantastic Auger-esque keyboard raises already superb numbers like 'That's Where the Rhythm Takes You' and 'Did I tell You' to psychedelic hymnal heights; and the frantic, flashing, slashing guitar moves songs like 'the Girl that Touched My Soul' and 'Stop This Cryin' Inside' well away from the stifling boundaries of 'mod' and into wide, spacious, unclogged areas of soul and free-base prestdigitation.

'Mod' is a misleading distraction: Makin' Time are more Love and Traffic than zoot-suits and targets.

hi, having been a mod and scooter boy i have allways been into alternative stuff, this group i followed many years ago and still have the vynal to prove it. its a real shame this group and the prisoners in general didnt make it in the eighties due to the record lable not helping much with record play.
still fay hallam and co had the voicies and the sound and in my view is still fresh as at was 20 odd years ago. honey the fast version and feels like its love to me stand out, but you can hear bits of manfred man, the jam, right down to martin blunts inspiral carpets, at that time a lot of scooterists went from the original sounds to the "madchester scene" and this group was a type of transition between the two. weather its my age or music today doesnt inspire like it did then and i would recomend this album to anyone who fancys something diferent from the norm. take what you can get. if its like this yes please. i will stop boring you rotton and toddle off.

By Coincidence Vs Fate TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Aug. 2005
Format: Audio CD
I never got to see Makin' Time live as by the mid 80's, though I still had my scooter, I tended to steer clear of the second wave of mod bands such as The Moment. None of these bands could touch the original crew such as The Chords, Secret Affair, Merton Parkas et al. However, Makin' Time did stand out above the rest of their mid-80's contemporaries simply because their output was usually of high quality. OK, so Faye was gorgeous, but that's got nothing to do with my obsession with them back then. Honest!
What gave Makin' Time their edge was that as they had a couple of different vocalists, their records could sound totally different. This includes all the tracks they recorded for Countdown, Eddie Pillar's Modtastic label. Highlights are Take What You Can Get, Feels Like It's Love and the brilliant Here Is My Number. OK, so some of the extended versions are a bit tiresome, but look at it as a bonus.
Can't recommend this CD enough.

I saw Makin' Time play two or three times in the 80s when bought most of their records, but finally being able to buy their best material on CD is a joy. Mark McGounden had one of the best soul voices of the time, and is shown at its best on their wonderful single 'Here Is My Number'. The whole package is tremendous and there's an entertaining history of the band by Mojo journalist Chris Hunt, who sets their music into the context of its time, and manages to offer an answer to the question of why they split up in the first place - something I didn't know. Bass player Martin Blunt is now in The Charlatans, but this is his best work.
