REALLY WANT TO SEE YOU
THE ALAN CADDY ORCHESTRA & SINGERS – “6 Top Hits” (Avenue NUE 104) 1971
Sleeve notes are written to tell you about the record, but you do not need to be told about this record. It is the latest in the Avenue “Top Hots” series, featuring hits from the current charts, performed “in the style of the originals” by the Alan Caddy Orchestra & Singers, impeccable as ever, need we say more?!
Unfortunately there are no tracks on this EP that make me want to spend some time and remaster an MP3 from the disc.
A good version of George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord” and the novelty number “Pushbike Song” recorded originally by the Mixtures.
It’s quite ironic though that someone else is singing “Your Song” originally a hit for Elton John, because during his earlier life as a jobbing session singer, the chubby Watford supporter laid down his vocals for many of the recordings used by the Avenue label.
