Customer Review

on 13 December 2013
I would imagine Beverley Skeete is probably best known via her long-standing tenure as one of the main vocalists with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings. Indeed, I am a big fan of her vocals and vocal-style as she is a wonderful interpreter of many classic songs. (Check out Wyman's version of Screaming Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell On You".)

However, on this album Skeete (presumably) contributes lyrics to her collaborator (Neil Pyzer's) music. Pyzer contributes guitars, bass, keyboards, harmonica and flute and it is this material, while in the main pleasant, is not really 'up to scratch' particularly, matched to the talents of Skeete, who performs all lead vocals, some of the backing vocals, as well as arranging all the vocals.

I sincerely hope that in the future Skeete perhaps takes a leaf out of say, Judie Tzuke's book. Tzuke has a history of collaboration with many writing partners and I feel sure that this would be advantageous to Skeete's future material. It would be a shame if Skeete couldn't improve on this mediocre effort.
