-- Lynsey de Paul
'Surprise' (SS504 / 1973)
Having not an inkling who Lynsey de Paul is, I thought I'd get another review out of the way, especially as the next is the big One Zero Zero. But going online I'm surprised that this was a new name to me. Ivor Novelle winning, Eurovision contestant, first female to have a number 1 with a self penned song in many European countries. An impressive CV. And a really strong debut album also. It's intelligent 60s pop with some real highlights including Storm in a Teacup and the aforementioned number one, Sugar Me. Mama Do has a great groove. She perhaps doesn't have the strongest of voices, but some really interesting vocal melodies and a fantastic ear for a hooky chorus. Only the ballads really suffer, probably because of the weak vocals, but way better than the album cover would suggest.
Wishy Washy Waste Of Money (crap) 3-10
HIGHLIGHT. Storm In A Teacup
LOW POINT. Ivory Tower
Yeah... A nice interesting little find this. Well worth a listen if you get a moment.
