4.0 out of 5 stars Faye Makes My Day!, 15 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Rhythm: the Complete Countdown Recordings (Audio CD)
I never got to see Makin' Time live as by the mid 80's, though I still had my scooter, I tended to steer clear of the second wave of mod bands such as The Moment. None of these bands could touch the original crew such as The Chords, Secret Affair, Merton Parkas et al. However, Makin' Time did stand out above the rest of their mid-80's contemporaries simply because their output was usually of high quality. OK, so Faye was gorgeous, but that's got nothing to do with my obsession with them back then. Honest!
What gave Makin' Time their edge was that as they had a couple of different vocalists, their records could sound totally different. This includes all the tracks they recorded for Countdown, Eddie Pillar's Modtastic label. Highlights are Take What You Can Get, Feels Like It's Love and the brilliant Here Is My Number. OK, so some of the extended versions are a bit tiresome, but look at it as a bonus.
Can't recommend this CD enough.
