Liverpool’s The Christians provided something different in the late 80’s, traditional soul mixed with a degree of technology and stylish harmonies. All written and produced by the three brothers. The 12″ mix was provided by Pete Hammond (him again!) but does not suffer from the excessive SAW style production, it simply funks up a top pop song.
Two excellent B-sides. The uptempo, “No Reason” with the wonky organ and strummed guitar and the Motown Big Band Sound of “The Losing Game” 100% Soul.
