In the Naked City
Customers who bought this item also bought
* It used to be said that there are eight million stories in the Naked City. Here are twenty four such stories, depicting the happiness and hardships, the highs and lows of 1960s city life.
* All human life is here - from the anticipation of arrival in a Metropolis; the hardships of employment and unemployment; the finding and losing of love; and the escapes from reality that can be found `Up On The Roof'. Although many of these songs are set in and around New York, their message is pan-American and could just as easily apply to Chicago, Detroit or any other city where not all the inhabitants found that summertime meant that the living (or the loving) was easy.
* A host of soul music's most revered artists are assembled to tell this story, from Arthur Alexander to Aretha Franklin. Almost all of those who tell it sing from personal experience of having lived it.
* Those who feel a purchase coming on will be pleased to know that more than half of the inclusions are making their CD debut.

With Ace now having put out 4 Jan Bradley songs out of over 20 she made there seems a strong possibility that it will be Ace who finally issue a Jan anthology seeing as her immediate contemporary Claudine Clark has now been given the CD treatment.In fact Jan Bradley is shown on the customized CD label
And in a kind of British Invasion in reverse these CDs of America's own long neglected music have to be obtained by collectors over there as imports!
Same as we have to do if we want Lesley Miller of Barbara Chandler product.
But back to this one-its nice to see plenty of cover versions and thank God they never included ropey stuff like New York New York
