Beverley Knight the finest voice of her generation, 29 April 2007
After a decade of successful contemporary Soul/RnB album's Beverley Knight gets back to the classic old school soul sound. If the likes of Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye are your 'thang' then this album is for you. Each track was recorded live, instead of layered, to keep that classic soul sound. Produced by Mark Nevers and featuring session musicians who have worked with legends like Al green and Elvis Presley. Also featuring, The Rolling Stones, Ronnie Wood (a huge fan of Ms Knight) on three tracks: 'Every Time You See Me Smile', 'Black Butta' and 'Ain't That A Lot Of Love'.
With fabulous song arrangements from the great piano groove on Ain't That A Lot Of Love to the catchy brass riffs on Queen Of Starting Over this album is guaranteed to get your toes `a' tapping.
The songs range from heart rending ballads like No Man's Land and After You thro' to get up n jump about floor fillers like Black Butta and a blistering cover of The Stones Time Is On My Side.
This is THE album to get you through the summer of 2007 with a smile on your face and a groove in your step.
