Golden Mile/Five Live Kursaals ~ Kursaal Flyers

Hot on the heels of the Kursaals Flyers' own "Hit Records: Best Of" release, Sony Rewind have put out "Golden Mile" coupled with "Five Live Kursaals" on a single CD at a low, low price.
It's an essential purchase for many reasons and here are a few...
The full album version of the Kursaals' hit single "Little Does She Know" has even more of Mike (Womble) Batt's "everything including the kitchen sink" OTT production; if you dance the way I do you'll identify with "Two Left Feet" and its lovely lilting latin sound; smile and tap your (2 left?) feet to the infectious Dan Hicks/Chilli Willi swing of "Detroit… Read more

Sometimes I hear shades Al Green or John Hiatt or Marc Germino - but mostly it's Dennis L. shining through and through. It's gonna take something truly heavyweight to get this disc out of the CD player.
