criminally underrated songwriter
on 24 January 2009
hue and cry were responsible for some of the most sophisticated urban soul to come out of britain in the late to mid 80's(apparently MILES DAVIS was a fan!) peaking perhaps with 1990 STARS CRASH DOWN-This wee compilation is well put together containing some lost gems ie "calamity john"-its lamentable that for me pat kanes lyrical zenith is not represented here with the songs SHE MAKES A SOUND or LIFE AS TEXT but gripes aside a fantastic compilation and for once it seems put together with some genuine affection for the band-Hue and cry were always a band that were just too good to be ignored so perhaps this will go someway to redress the balance-enjoy!
