This review is from: The First Cut (Audio CD)
PP Arnold is criminally underated and you can hear why on this terrific compilation of her 60's recordings. She possessed a wonderful and passionate voice wringing every drop of emotion from the songs that she recorded.
Best known for the magnificent "First Cut Is The Deepest" there is so much more to discover on this CD which houses some of the best northern soul of the era ! Just listen to the stomping "Speak to me", "If you see what i mean" and "Everthings Gonna be Alright" as prime examples of the genre. There is also the fantastic "Angel of the Morning" and the brilliant "If you think you're Groovy" where she is backed by the Small Faces. Throw in some more than interesting cover versions of Beatles, Rolling Stones and Beach Boys songs as well as a stunning version of the Bee Gees "To Love Somebody" and you have a great introduction to PP Arnolds wonderful music.
