4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Jun. 2011
Format: Audio CD
The gatefold slip of paper that is the inlay on this rather naff-looking CD compilation gives you no information on what's what. So here's the details...

Issued in 2001, "The Music Of..." on EMI Gold 535 5752 (78:25 minutes) gathers together the guts of two rare and largely forgotten Labi Siffre albums - both from 1975. You can sequence them as follows...

"Remember My Song", his 5th album, released March 1975 in the UK on EMI Records EMC 3065
Side 1:
I Got The... (Track 1)
Another Year (Track 2)
Down
Old Time Song (Track 3)
The Vulture (Track 4)

Side 2:
Dreamer (Track 5)
Sadie And The Devil (Track 6)
Turn On Your Love (Track 7)
Remember My Song (Track 8)

"Happy?", his 6th album, released November 1975 in the UK on EMI Records EMC 3098
Side 1:
Love-A-Love-A-Love-A-Love-A (Track 9)
You Hurt Me (Track 10)
Doctor Doctor (Track 11)
Second Time Around (Track 12)
Would You Dance? (Track 13)

Side 2:
Supaluvva (Track 14)
Staride To Nowhere (Track 15)
You've Done Something To My Heart (Track 16)
Sally Came To Stay (Track 17)
La-De-Da-De-Da (Lost Without Your Love) (Track 18)

As you see from the list above, the song "Down" from the "Remember My Song" LP is missing from this 18-track compilation. That album (along with earlier LPs on Pye Records) were reissued as CD remasters in 2006 - so if you want that song, 3 extra bonus tracks and far better sound - look to the 2006 issue. The "Happy?" album (in its entirety) is only available here.

Both records are very mid Seventies singer-songwriter material, but with a slightly more soulful tint on some tracks. Two huge club hits are "I Got The...

I've bought this CD cause I love Joss Stone and in her last work there is a cover of "I Got the...". I didn't know Labi and has been a good good surprise. good music! if you like soul/funk buy it!

Format: Audio CD
wanted some music that was easy to listen to and brought me back to younger times. This music is just how I remembered younger days and was a delight to listen to, I would certainly buy other discs to listen too. Good for bringing down stress levels and easy listening while travelling in our car, even my grandson approved!!!!!!!!

That album (along with earlier LPs on Pye Records) were reissued as CD remasters in 2006 - so if you want that song, 3 extra bonus tracks and far better sound - look to the 2006 issue. The "Happy?" album (in its entirety) is only available here.

Both records are very mid Seventies singer-songwriter material, but with a slightly more soulful tint on some tracks. Two huge club hits are "I Got The..." which contains the now famous funky bass-break half way through it as sampled by EMINEM on his "My Name Is" hit - while "The Vulture" has been club played for years now. In fact the original vinyl album of "Remember My Song" used to once command a £150 price tag because it had those 2 songs on it and were unavailable on CD prior to 2001.

Other tracks on "Happy?" are worth having too - the soulful-funky "Second Time Around" and the almost Steely Dan keyboard slink of "Doctor Doctor" (lyrics above). The lovely acoustic "Staride To Nowhere" was even issued as a 45 in the UK and "Sally Came To Stay" has the prettiest of melodies. Siffre would retire from music until 1987's extraordinarily powerful anti-racism song "(Something Inside) So Strong" on China Records.

It's not all genius of course, but it's dirt cheap, loaded with gems in between the cracks and has very acceptable sound.

From here, I'd advise to go to his first four albums on Pye Records - "Labi Siffre" (1970), "The Singer And The Song" (1971), "Crying Laughing Loving Lying" (1972) and "For The Children" (1973) - I've reviewed them all separately and they're uniformly excellent (with truly superlative remastered sound and bonus tracks).

Siffre has a loyal and dedicated fan following - and there are moments on this unassuming compilation when you can 'so' hear why...
