Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 16 October 2008
Georgie Fame could do little wrong from the moment he burst into the public consciousness with the no.1 hit, 'Yeh Yeh'. Not surprisingly, this collection of mid-1960s recordings opens with this and his follow-up chart-topper, 'Get Away'. These are among the poppier tracks, along with Bobby Hebb's 'Sunny' and 'Sitting In The Park', a languid, summery hit. All of the music contained here though is jazz-inflected r&b, led by Fame's organ, husky vocals and complemented by brass. Most of the tracks are uptempo and reflect a buoyant and exciting musical era. The album is a capsule of swinging Britain as we like to imagine it, even if the image isn't the truth. Perhaps the only mistake is the cover of 'Green Onions'. It's actually a good track in its own right, but against Booker T's awesome original doesn't stand a chance. James Brown fans might feel the same about 'Papa's Got A Brand New Bag'. Nevertheless, this is a superb compilation. Significantly, it's been around since 1980.
