On this album are twelve unique titles. Unique, because each one of them has touched the nerve of an entire generation. Not just in this country, but right round the world. Most of them came from ‘ left field’ — out of nowhere. ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale‘,’ In the Summertime‘,’ Band of Gold‘,’ Love is Blue‘,’ What a Wonderful World‘, ‘Sugar Sugar‘, ‘Baby Love‘.
Another in a long line of “cover version” albums that were popular in the late sixties and seventies. never quite accurate enough to fool anyone into thinking they were hearing the actual hits but the effort made to get close was clear. Hear for yourself with this album’s version of “Whiter Shade of Pale” below.
