Wonderful singing from unique (and vanished) singer,
This review is from: Affinity (Audio CD)
Linda Hoyle has a wonderful voice, at times sounding like Grace Slick (Airplane) and Julie Driscoll (Wheels on Fire) or a mixture of Nina Simone, Billie Holiday or Ella Fiztgerald - blues jazz and rock to suit all tastes.
Here she sings on Affinity's only album - matched by some excellent musicians, with an especial mention for Lynton Naiff on hammond organ - although this can get a little over-blown at points!
Best Tracks include:
- Coconut Grove : slow soul ballad
- Mr Joy : Airplane style rock
- All Along the Watchtower : stunning organ solos with brilliant vocals.
If you enjoyed this, then do try Linda Hoyle's solo album - "Pieces of Me", on which she is backed by bits of Soft Machine!
