Reading through the album credits of the British bands of the early sixties there are a number of names that crop up time and time again as writers, the inspiration behind The Beatles, Tne Stones, The Animals, Them, The Yardbirds and countless others. many of those names were household names then and remain so today, names like Little Richard, Lieber & Stoller, The Isleys, Smokey Robinson.... but one contributor remains in sad and neglected obscurity.... and that man is Arthur Alexander. So buy this album and see what sparked the interest of the Lennons & McCartneys, the Jaggers & Richards, the Burdons, Paiges, Claptons and Morrisons all those years ago. These are sparse, honest, raw songs sung in a clear, undemonstrative but nonetheless heartfelt way. 'Anna' is worth the album price on its own and there are plenty more here that are its equal. So treat yourself and discover a little bit of pop history that you probably didn't know existed. It might not change your life, but you'll still be glad you met Arthur Alexander somewhere along the way.
