Party album extraordinaire,
This review is from: The Very Best of Jimmy Somerville, Bronski Beat & The Communards (Audio CD)
For someone who was so ubiquitous in the pop charts throughout the 80s, it's mystifying how quickly Jimmy Somerville fell out of favour.
As part of Bronski Beat, The Communards and finally as a solo artist, Somerville released some of the most memorable tracks of the decade, including fantastic covers of Don't Leave Me This Way, I Feel Love and Never Can Say Goodbye, the poignant Smalltown Boy, the brilliant So Cold The Night, Why? and many more.
His falsetto may be grating to some, but this for me is pop at it's most infectious. Impossible not to sing along to, it's a cracking album to add to your collection and guaranteed to get a party going.
