Biography

The British soul pop band Simply Red was formed in 1984 by singer Mick "Red" Hucknall (born Michael James Hucknall, Jun. 8, 1960, Manchester, England) with three ex-members of Durutti Column, Tony Bowers (b.

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

With young, British, soul stars like Amy Winehouse, Paolo Nutini, and Joss Stone crashing the American charts, what better time to celebrate the return of one of the original great blue-eyed soul singers, Simply Red's curly-mopped Mick Hucknall? Despite being dropped by its label in 2002, his band has flourished on its own, both artistically and commercially. Stay, Simply Red's third independent release, loses none of the crisp soul-jazz beauty that marked the group's late '80s heyday. It has a younger, fresher feel than 2003's elegant Home, but that does lead to more of a mixed bag. A pair of bite-the-hand-that-feeds protest tunes, "Money TV" and "The Death of the Cool," fall wide of the mark, but Hucknall makes up for it when he lets his shimmering voice rise above the electronic fanfare, delivering the classic love song "So Not Over You." Meanwhile, "They Don't Know" and the lively "Oh! What A Girl" prove that he can still give the new generation of soul singers a run for their money. --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid album from a solid album 24 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
Mick Hucknall has always been one of those people that the public either love or hate. People on Simply Red's website forums seem to think of Mick as a God, whereas the press are not nearly as generous, often slating his music. Simply Red's 10th studio album is unlikely to garner favour from those in the `hate' category but it'll almost certainly be a hit with fans and should convert a few others along the way. `Stay' finds Mick at a happy point in his life - he now has a long-term girlfriend with a recently announced baby on the way and Mick wants to sing about this new-found happiness, and also have a rant or two at the end of the album. `Stay' certainly has an energy and vibrancy that has been unseen for a while. It's a welcome return to some new material, after 2005's effort `Simplified', which contained mainly re-workings of classic Simply Red tracks. The album is slightly rockier than previous releases, but that shouldn't put anyone off and it is a welcome direction for them.

The first five songs on the album are love songs, but they are not all mushy and they have a respectable melody to them. Many people will probably be able to identify with the lyrics of `So Not Over You', whilst `The World and You Tonight' has a refreshing and catchy tune to it. `Oh! What a Girl' provides one of the albums funkier tracks and the soaring horns and the slight hint of innuendo make for a good combination. Possible future single `Stay' also has a catchy pop tune.

Hints of soul are included with `They Don't Know' and the blues infused, autobiographical `Good Times Have Done Me Wrong', has a raw sound that suits Mick very well. It also showcases three of the band's brightest stars - Kenji Suzuki on guitar, Ian Kirkham on saxophone and Dave Clayton on piano.

5.0 out of 5 stars A major return to form 22 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ok, let's get things straight here - I can honestly say my admiration for Mick and the gang have wained over the years. "Stars", admittedly, was nothing short of a masterwork but, let's face it, that was over 15 years ago. Since then, although both "Life" and "Home" had a handful of great songs, Simply Red have never really come close to matching that seminal record from 1991 - until now. I can honestly say that there isn't a duff song on this album. Sure, the latter half of the album may not 'rock your boat' on first listen, but set your CD player to 'repeat' and I guarantee you will be humming along in no time - not to mention whistling along to "Little Englander"! Summing up, this album confirms that Mick is back to his best and, incredibly, his voice sounds better than ever. I hold my hands up - the boy's still got it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Red - Still on Top 21 Mar 2007
By Les
Format:Audio CD
With seminal albums like 'Stars' and 'Home' in their repertoire, Simply Red had much to live up to with their new long player, 'Stay'. For this reviewer (a fan for more years than I care to remember), this album has delivered on every level.

It's a vibrant collection of songs that range from the slick soulfullness we've come to expect (`The World And You Tonight') to the wonderfully guitar-driven Ronnie Lane classic 'Debris' and the playful 'Oh What A Girl'. If I had to choose a highlight, it would be the irrepressible title track 'Stay'.

And all delivered, as always, by Mick Hucknall's incredible vocal - a voice that few other artists can hold a candle to.

So, to sum, an essential addition to your CD collection if you appreciate top quality production and songs you will never tire of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Marvellous ! 13 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
To me, buying a Simply Red album is something I do with confidence and that confidence was confirmed in abundance yesterday when I received my copy of Simply Reds third independent release, STAY. The opening track, The World and You Tonight is a song for you and that special someone, sang with ease and soulful tones there is no doubt in my mind that this track will be ranked amongst Simply Reds all time classics. All songs on the album have an edge that many artists would find difficult to beat. This album has been compared to the massive selling 1992 album Stars but to me its uniqueness is its selling point. Fantastic melodies and musical arrangements with some very meaningful lyrics, a must for any music lovers collection. The musicians excel as much as Hucknall. Oh and it sounds great in the car with the sunshine gazing down and the windows open !!

4.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Album ....!!! 21 Mar 2007
By russell
Format:Audio CD
Admittedly i haven't bought a Simply Red record since the mid-90's. I heard the single 'So Not Over You' on Radio 2 a couple of times and thought that Mick and the boys were back on track. I really like the whole album especially Debris, They Don't Know and The World Any You Tonight. It's a really complete listen that you don't get too often when you buy albums these days that have just one good track on...
