Session singers and musicians who wanted to do their own thing, while continuing their other work, formed Blue mink to give them an outlet. It was not intended to be a hit-making or touring group, as nobody was hungry. Given all this, it is remarkable that the original line-up stayed together for five years. After a couple of line-up changes, the group disbanded a year later. This anthology contains the best of their music from those six years. The lead singers were Roger Cook and Madeline Bell. The other four members were Roger Coulam (organ), Herbie Flowers (bass), Barry Morgan (drums) and Alan Parker (guitar).
Roger Cook is best known as a songwriter. He started writing pop songs in the sixties and eventually ended up writing country songs in Nashville. Among the pop songs he wrote, often with Roger Greenaway, are You’ve got your troubles (Fortunes), Something’s gotten hold of my heart (Gene Pitney), I’d like to teach the world to sing (New seekers), Conversations (Cilla Black) and Gasoline alley bred (Hollies). Roger also wrote most of the hits for Blue mink. In the sixties, he had originally been with the Kestrels and later was one half of David and Jonathan (famous for Lovers of the world unite). Both of those acts also featured Roger Greenaway.
Madeline made some records as a solo singer but never established herself in that role. However, she did plenty of backup singing for others, including Dusty Springfield, Elton John and Rod Stewart among many others.
Blue mink’s own UK hits included Melting pot (a song encouraging different ethnic groups to mix), Banner man, Good morning freedom, Randy and By the devil I was tempted. I do not know if any of these songs charted in America. However, these hits were not typical of the group’s music as a whole.

Blue Mink had quite a musical heritage. They were fronted by Madeline Bell who had worked as a session singer with just about everybody and Roger Cook, one half of Cook & Greenaway who wrote smash hits for every singalong band of the era, including the million seller 'I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing'. Blue Mink also included noted musician Herbie Flowers who's credits ranged from Lou Reed to CLive Dunn! Best known for 'Melting Pot', 'Banner Man' and the beautiful, under rated 'Stay With Me', all 7 of their chart hits are featured on this 2 CD set. Trouble is, so are another 28 tracks - many largely forgettable. If you want to have the hits on CD in your collection however, you'll just have to get used to skipping tracks or put up with all the padding. Any band that can have a top ten hit in 1973 with a song called 'Randy' however deserves kudos!
