i highly recommend this album, this is steve ellis after he left love affair,
cd 1 steve recorded with the arranger and musician from the love affair recordings, songs that he had personally chosen to record, and there's some excellent covers, steve's rendition of something's gotten hold of my heart far out does gene pitney's original, it's a man's man's man's world is a great version and only steve could have pulled this off the way he did, steve is an amazing blue eyed soul singer and this album does him alot of credit, but, it took 43 years to materialise, steve has tried numerous times to locate these tapes and have them released, they are finally available, and they are worth the wait,
cd 2 is recorded with the band hookfoot, and a couple of chas chandler productions along with guests zoot money, jimmy mcculloch, johnny steele and canadian band eggs over easy, this disc is more rockier, but, steve's voice still shines through, there's more great covers here, the rolling stones gimme shelter and elton john's take me to the pilot,
do yourself a favour, buy this, you will not regret it

Through YouTube I rediscovered my favourite group of my teens, always loved steve ellis's voice ,some fantastic tracks , it's a man's man's world, Gimme shelter and my favourite Evie worth every penny.

I absolutely love this CD. All the tracks are out of this world and Steve's voice is just wonderful - brings back lots of memories from my teenage years! I would highly recommend this CD especially to anyone who was into music in the late sixties!

This album is amazing, it takes me back to the time I listened to the "EVERLASTING LOVE AFFAIR" over and over when it came out, and Steve's voice on this new album obviously sounds the same...So good.
