This album does not quite match the superb "Sneakin Sally Through The Alley" but is certainly his next best recording and is much better than any later stuff. I still remember hearing "Give Me An Inch Girl" on Radio 1 after its this album's release in about 1976 and it was this that first made me aware of Robert Palmer. "Which Of Us Is The Fool" and "Back In My Arms" are also great songs. I recently heard Stuart Maconie and Mark Ratcliffe talking about the best blue-eyed soul singers of all time on their Radio 2 show and could not believe it when Robert Palmer was not mentioned !

5.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Emotions, 28 Nov 2008
Superb from start to finish, this is the follow-up to David Peaston's equally brilliant debut album "Introducing..David Peaston". The man can out-sing anyone and demonstrates an awesome vocal range. Difficult to pick out highlights as there is not a weak track on the album. It's one of only a handful of records in my 40-year collection that is without any disappointing tracks. Tragically, this was the second and last solo album he recorded but both are must-have's for any soul music lover.

This is a must-have album for any soul lover. Absolutely superb from start to finish, not a weak track on it. One of precious few albums in my 40 years of listening to music that I can say that about. This man is the brother of Fontella Bass and came to prominence after starring in the American TV talent show "Live from the Apollo", where he mesmerised the audience week after week with his amazing vocals, leading to a recording contract. This should have been the start of a brilliant career but, tragically, he only made one further album - the equally good follow-up to this first record, titled "Mixed Emotions". He can be found on various records, supporting other artists such as Fontella… Read more
