Rhythm & Soul,
This review is from: Rhythm: the Complete Countdown Recordings (Audio CD)
I only got to see Makin' Time live once but they were one of the best live acts I have ever seen. This release is long over due and gathers together their debut album "Rhythm & Soul" (which was only ever released on CD in Japan) and their 3 singles which came out on the Countdown Mod label.
It still surprises me that Makin' Time never made an impact on the charts as they were one of the best bands around at the time. This CD is full of great tunes like "Where The Rhythm Takes You", "Here Is My Number", "The Girl That Touched My Soul", "Honey" and a cracking cover of Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up".
I would like to see Big Beat reissue Makin' Time's second album "No Lumps Of Fat Or Gristle Guaranteed" as it is even better than "Rhythm & Soul".
