Simply Red - Simplified Colored Import 180g Vinyl LP
Simply Red Simplified Colored Import 180g Vinyl LP
Simply Red's phenomenal career has spanned four decades; releasing 11 studio albums racking up over 50 million global sales, notched up over 30 top 40 UK singles, countless awards including three Brits, and two Ivor Novello's. This 2005 album includes the hit single 'Perfect Love', and stripped down versions of classics 'Holding Back The Years' and 'Fairground'.
Supposedly a humble gesture, it smacks of classic rocker egotism. Revisiting some of Simply Red's hits after he was asked to perform material with only a piano as accompaniment, Mick Hucknall was inspired to, well, sell us the same songs all over again. So we get jazzy, acoustic versions of 'Sad Old Red' et al.
There is some new material, including the Havana-inspired single 'Perfect Love' and 'A Song For You', a rather remarkable cover of a Leon Russell composition from the Seventies. For fans only, but look out for a dizzy, ethereal version of 'Fairground' - one of the great white pop songs, even if snobs won't admit it.
