If you own other Beth Orton CDs, you're likely to have heard "Best Bit" already, but track one here is a slight reworking, so you won't feel cheated. All of the tracks on the album are up to Beth's usual high standard, but the real standout is her duet with Terry Callier on their cover of Dolphins. I can't begin to convey how fantastic this song is, and it would be worth buying the EP even if it only had this one track on it. It really is that good!
With a mixture of Terry Callier and Beth Orton! I'd never heard of Terry Callier until now-a Jazz Musician with a voice like satin, mix this with Beth's voice of silk and you have a smooth and blissful sound to please anyone's ears. Lean on me is a pretty awsome track and they do a good cover of 'Dolphins'. I read in a interview with Beth about this EP that she was suggested by Terry to 'just sing like him and he will try to sing like her', subsequently a harmonious match made in heaven, better in my opinion than any of her new stuff, a lot more passionate, just a lot more Beth.l
