The Game

The Addicted Man: Lyrics won't please everyone--otherwise it's a fairly pedantic sort of group sound, with good instrumental splashes. Rather advanced, musically.


Sally: This'll either be a hit or a stinking great flop! The Gracie Fields oldie, sung straight with barely a glimmer of humour, and with long passages featuring the human whistle! Yet play it a couple of times and it starts clicking into place. Unusual, off-beat in this day and age.

The Loot

Baby Come Closer: Big hopes for this new larry page outfit--they come from rural parts as did the Troggs. An exciting instrumental sound and the vocal lines are full of purring sexiness, with a split arrangement. I've a feeling it'll break through first time. There'll be comparisons but nothing to worry about.

Moody Blues

Life's Not Life: These talented lads "bubbled under" last time out and this is rather a stronger release. Deliberately repetitious, a bit on the philosophic side, and arranged with an ear on the unusual. Can't see it being really big chops and changes around a bit too much.

Rolling Stones

Let's Spend The Night Together/ Ruby Tuesday: And everybody wonders if this one will get to number one. In fact, it should--and easily. Top value comes from "Spend The Night", which could have a fairly innocent air to it if it wasn't by the Stones! Slightly submerged Mick, over a bah-bahing vocal arrangement, sturdy drive and a highly commercial yet musicianly approach. Flip is a moody sort of slow ballad, in what the Stones call "our 'As Tears Go BY' mood". Good contrast, good value.
