So onwards with an ultimate mid-80’s coffee table tune. From 1985 and a classic bit of blue-eyed soul from Hucknall and Neil Moss with the crystal clear production of Stewart Levine on this original release, there’s much more keyboard on this version, the original original was from their own band, The Frantic Elevators. Hucknall certainly knows how to showcase that fabulous voice and it made many people sit up and take note of what was the beginning of a long career.
The funk is turned up on bonus track “I Won’t Feel Bad” – classic Simply Red.
I’ve just found out that the UK 12″ version (already on here) is another case of the Missing Files, I’ll get my Deer Stalker on!
