Mixed Bag, on the whole pretty good.
on 13 June 2015
Mixed bag, on the whole pretty good, but some real misses. Some of these are really very good, but there are some not so good ones and a couple of bad ones. Some gems are 'Please Operator' by Tony and Tyrone, 'You hit me' by Alice Clark, 'Change my Darkness into Light' by the Flirtations (the lead singer sounds so much like Dee Dee Warwick), a very nice bit of blue eyed soul by Franki Valli 'You Ready Now', 'Big Bird' by Eddie Floyd (I had this already, though) but there quite a few others. One particularly bad tune is Jimmy Hughes' 'Slipping Around With You'; this starts an average Northern Number, but has the most dreadful instrumental solo, which is complete turn off.
