Format: Audio CD
Despite the glamorous image of his 1980s pop videos, Robert Palmer was a serious musician who experimented with a variety of styles throughout the different phases of his career.
Double Fun, his 1978 album, has at least two classic songs that also became big hits. Every Kinda People's mellow reggae rhythm belies its serious lyric reminding the listeners that no matter the superficial differences, all people are really the same inside. Best Of Both Worlds also has a lilting reggae rhythm and remarkably mature lyrics.
The brooding Come Over has funky disco beat and emotive vocal, whilst Where Can It Go is a slow, gentle ballad. The riff and instrumentation of Night People places it firmly in the disco era but it's not the Bee Gees song!
Love Can Run Faster is another mellow reggae song with a lovely keyboard touches, a beautiful melody and catchy hook. You Overwhelm Me is a more orchestral piece with beautiful strings, whilst his cover of The Kinks' You Really Got Me has a nice chugging rhythm.
This varied album closes with the rock number You're Gonna Get What's Coming, the heaviest number on the album with its prominent guitars. Double Fun is a successful blend of many styles that Robert Palmer had expertly made his own.

palmer's albums became more musically diverse through his career, from the relatively straight forward i-can't-believe-he's-not-from-louisiana soul-funk of sneaking sally... through to his mega-hit riptide by which time he was sitting choppy glossy rock alongside cut-up funk, old ballads and ever present world music influences.

but this album is perhaps the best example of how to make a diverse range of songs sit seamlessly next to one another. the key is palmer's voice that at one moment is soft as silk, the next an urgent almost hoarse sexually-charged plead yet always unmistakably palmer. he rarely sounded better on record.

This edition is nowhere as good as I had hoped,it sounds very bright,overcompressed,and grainy.The 2001 release is not as clear,but is far more listenable,the term "digital glare" comes to mind.I had the original vinyl when it was released in '78,as I recall,it was a pretty "muddy" recording.Probably not possible to do a lot with it anyway,given the choice I'd stick with the 2001 copy.

This is simply the best album Robert Palmer ever made. Ever track is stunning. Soul, funk and rock brilliantly arranged and performed. If you are looking for one Robert Palmer album to add to your collection, I unreservedly recommend this one.

This has to be one of Robert's best LPs.

Fabulous cover and brilliant music but if the price is putting you off may I suggest getting the boxset which inclused this CD the wonderful clues and an 18 track best of album for a mear £6 ?
