THE INMATES – \”So Much In Love\” / \”Tell Me What\’s Wrong\” (Radar ADA 29) September 1980 

Here\’s another magical number by The Inmates, this time it\’s a Jagger – Richard composition from 1964. The latter didn\’t use it for The Rolling Stones at the time but it was recorded by The Mighty Avengers who promptly got recognised and had a hit record. Immediate label solo artist Charles Dickens also released the song as a single in early 1966 but his version flopped.

The Inmates offer a faithful rendition with their customary instrumental skill and solid vocals. Quite why this commercial sounding and radio friendly record wasn\’t a hit is anyone\’s guess. The best material sometimes falls through the cracks as everyone knows. The back of the picture sleeve has details of their month long British tour during October 1980.
