Came to this album late, admit I bought it here on Amazon because it was cheap, best pound I've spent in awhile! Not many albums I play and put on again right after. Love the cover versions, like the late night laidback feel, had friends over for dinner the other night, played very nicely in background, not STARS but then that would have been boring, highly recommend to any Simply Red fan, if your unsure of buying this don't be, you wont be disappointed!!!
Simply Red is one of the best bands of today in the U.S. and abroad. Their music is constantly changing but continuously fantastic. I always have to listen to their new songs more than once and try to remember not to expect the same old thing but open myself to new sounds in their music. Blue is a good example of totally different but totally terrific music. Mick writes songs about what he is feeling and I think it takes alot of strength to be sooo real. I hope they consider touring in the states because I would love to see them (Mick)in person!
I'm lost for words truly. This is a definitive mood expression for Simply Red. That voice, wow, that voice and emotion, sounds of that band....can just reach out and touch your heart. You will identify with the words...love both takes on "air". Wonderful, wonderful! Lovin' it in the USA!
