All of the songs are rather short I should perhaps warn you; nonetheless, this is a fantastic re-release of a rare album, and a must for fans of that genre.

All of the songs are rather short I should perhaps warn you; nonetheless, this is a fantastic re-release of a rare album, and a must for fans of that genre.

The album is only 32 minutes long, but Fayette’s in very good voice – and there’s particularly noticeable instrumental colour from a sessions squad that includes such illustrious industry figures as Les Hurdle (bass), Barry Morgan (drums) and Frank Ricotti (percussion).

The Beat (March 2013)


…although tracks like vibrant ‘Light In The Window’ or the ska-kissed ‘Half Of Love’ are typical for their era, if infectious, ‘The Other Side Of Me’ wafts delicately on the acoustic wave, while other ballad, ‘Nothing Lasts For Ever’, reveals all the strength of the singer’s pipes. Yet ‘Tearaway’ truly transcends the temporal shackles with its transparent funk and gentle synthetic undercurrent that Les Hurdle’s bass punctures in all the right places, as it does in the sweet, romantic ‘Mine Is Not To Reason Why’ the full-on soul sway of which makes one long for more. Sadly, there’s nothing more, Fayette Pinkney died in 2009, having left this as a lasting legacy. *** 1/3
