Short, sweet and dry.
on 6 March 2014
10 songs, the longest being Hands on the Clock at 3:50, a very short album timewise.
But fully packed with a punch that makes you sit memorexed in your chair and listen.
A dry, no-nonsense production centering around guitar, double bass, sax and drums. Occasional piano or organ, minimal backing vocals.
I gave his first album Time's all Gone a three star but had to change my mind after seeing him live. I'm not making that mistake again.
Think about it: you can play Holly twice in the time it takes to listen to some of those modern 80 minute jobs. And you'll be twice as pleased that you did. Yeah this is excellent R&B.
And don't be fooled by the Sixties flower power cover. The music moves and shakes like a hipster on speed.
