Under Your Spell?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: etc almost (Audio CD)
Former Then Jerico front man Mark Shaw's debut album was highly anticipated at the time of its release, but sank without a trace, which was unfortunate.
Perhaps the teen idol persona that Shaw courted cost him a few fans, or maybe the choice of Love So Bright as the debut single, as opposed to the rousing opener Under Your Spell, was a mistake. We'll never truly know.
It's not perfect or full of singles, but is an album that any fan of Then Jerico should check out, if they can find it at a reasonable price, or it gets a deserved re-release.
Postscript: Long after EMI had given up on wringing a few hits out of charismatic Shaw, some of the better tracks off the album, including The One That Got Away and Happy Families, re-emerged on Alive & Exposed a live CD released by Murder Records, which also included old favourites from Then Jerico.
