“Recorded in 1995, this project features a “who’s who” of British rock with contributions from Ray Fenwick, Tony Ashton, Debbie Bonham, Mike D’Abo, John Entwistle, Chris Farlowe, Mo Foster, Eddie Hardin, Paul Jones, Denny Laine, Phil Manzanera, Chris Thompson, Zak Starkey and Snowy White. History was created with Paul Jones and Mike D’Abo dueting together on the song “Here I Go Again” – both Manfred Mann vocalists singing together for the first time!”. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved:


“The album is a fairly schizophrenic mix of British jazz-blues and psych-pop, with the album fairly evenly divided between the two approaches. The opener is nearly a title track (“With His New Face On”), a string-laden midtempo slice of psych-pop that has some great chord changes that are reminiscent of Mike D’Abo’s work from around the same period. It’s one of the best tracks on the album. “Mr. Second Class” begins with a feel that presages prog, but quickly shifts to a 4/4 march not unlike the Box Tops’ swansong, “Sweet Cream Ladies.” “Alec in Transit Land” is a pretty straight jazz instrumental, recalling the work of early Manfred Mann (with the exception of a lengthy, even tiresome, drum solo). “Sanity Inspector,” on the other hand, is a delicate piece of psychedelic whimsy, with the usual contrived lyrics that mix a character narrative with vague social commentary. It’s a charming curiosity. “Feel Your Way” is a solid guitar-driven blues-shuffle with a great vocal and organ solo by Hardin. “Morning Sun” mixes the blues influences with a soaring, soulful chorus, recalling Jackie Lomax’s first solo album on Apple. “Moonshine” walks the line between jazz-blues and freakbeat, with another terrific vocal (mostly) treated with deep slapback echo. “Time Seller” returns to psych-pop, this time with manic drums and sawing cellos throughout. Though a bit dated, it also features some clever, unexpected chord changes and strong stacked backing vocals. The closer, “Stop Me, I’m Falling,” approaches vaudeville at times, but is definitely the most creative track on the album, shifting arrangements, time signatures and tonalities at will, ending with a lengthy, pretentious recitation. I love it!” Quoted From / All Rights Reserved


“It’s now 40 years since Dave Berry’s ‘ eponymous debut album was released and it resounds with the distinctive vocal style still sustaining him today as a cornerstone of the Sixties performing scene. Of course this is most obviously the case with ‘The Crying Game’, the extraordinary recording which introduced the wounded, vulnerable delivery that became a Berry trade mark. Ethereal and chillingly haunting, the song was a high-quality add­ition to the 1964 singles charts, and proves a devastatingly powerful opener to a CD comprising two original Dave Berry LPs.
That first album also included a rendition of ‘ Memphis Tennessee’ – the number written by his namesake Chuck, which had brought him a first minor hit the previous year. But you can visualise Dave’s moody stage charisma seeping from the grooves as he confidently dips his brush into an extensive palette and daubs the canvas with a colourful mix of contemporary material.
There are examples of the same kind of r’n’b as his Decca label-mates the Rolling Stones were tackling at the same time but elements of folk, country and skiffle-blues are among other diversities.
A crucial role is played by session guitarists Big Jim Sullivan and Jimmy Page, each of them shining with an inventive display of technical wizardry. ‘One Dozen Berrys’ was released in 1966 after he had become a well established figure in the pop currency of international record sales, live shows and TV appearances and the LP duly rein­forced his evident popularity. ‘I’ve Got My Tears To Remind Me’ a song written by Jackie DeShannon and Jimmy Page showcases Dave at his melodramatic best. With other tracks having been drawn from a variety of sources, including Chuck Berry again, Bobby Goldsboro and Burt Bacharach-Hal David ( Berry’s hit ‘Baby It’s You), an­other wide sweep in content and approach is assured from the outset”.
