I came late to Robert Palmer's music, even though I was around and listening to all sorts before he ever appeared on the scene. I came late: around 'Looking For Clues', and liked it, though was not bowled over by it (it was a time when you could buy pirate cassettes at London Bridge station for a couple of ££s, a cheap way of reviewing records that were of interest!).
I clearly remember my local record dealer talking of his liking for RP's early stuff, rather than the 'electronic' music of 'Clues' and other records of then and later.
I didn't take a lot of notice and ignored his musings.
And now? Directly because of the reviews I have been able to read on the Amazon site, I have bought and now listened to both this CD and 'Pressure Drop', and am SO happy to have discovered some true gems of blue-eyed soulful funk in these two CDs. It's GREAT music! And I know they will be included amongst my favourite albums.
