HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER

THE LOVE AFFAIR: EVERLASTING LOVE AFFAIR
“Their debut album “Everlasting Love Affair” was released in December  (1968) to cash in on the success of “A Day Without Love”, but it wasn’t promoted and failed to chart. It was a solid enough collection, however. Ellis: “I truly don’t know what happened. There was no big album campaign, and just hardcore supporters bought it. Shame, as in retrospect the live studio tracks like ‘Hush’ captured what we were about without the orchestra. Love Affair were a kicking band, but we were labelled ‘teeny-bop idols’, and it just stopped people taking us a bit more seriously. Very disheartening for me and the band at the time.” Still, the band were undoubtedly at the top of their career, as you couldn’t open a music magazine without finding one or more stories about the band inside. The “Everlasting Love Affair” album included the first three CBS singles plus accomplished and memorable versions of “Hush” (Deep Purple), “The First Cut Is The Deepest” (Cat Stevens/P.P. Arnold), “Tobacco Road” (the Nashville Teens), Mike D’Abo’s “Handbags And Gladrags” and a slow, rocked-up take on the Hayes/Porter soul favourite, “60 Minutes (Of Your Love)”.

LONG JOHN BALDRY & THE HOOCHIE COOCHIE MEN
 

“One of the unsung jewels of the British R&B scene, Long John’s Blues, is astonishingly, the sole surviving document of what was, at one point, among the most exciting live acts on the entire circuit. Baldry himself was dynamite, with a grasp of blues singing that left his contemporaries foundering. His takes on “Got My Mojo Working,” “Dimples,” and “Hoochie Coochie Man” alone are worth the price of admission, no matter how many other versions you may own, while “My Times Are Getting Tougher Than Tough” and, best of all, “Everyday I Have the Blues” pack a punch that reminds us just what great musicians Baldry surrounded himself with, former Cyril Davies All Stars veterans Geoff Bradford and Cliff Barton among them. An excellent sleeve photo, stylishly mod as only Long John could be, completed the original vinyl package, but even in the record’s later incarnation, as part of a two-fer CD with the sleeve barely visible,  Long John’s Blues stands proud among the most essential British blues albums of them all”.
