JAMES WARREN found fame and fortune as lead singer with THE KORGIS and wrote and sang their worldwide hit “Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime”. As well as founding The Korgis, he also co-founded STACKRIDGE who recently performed their last ever live concert.

Now 65 years old with his one enduring love since acquiring his first guitar at 14, melodic pop music, he has written and produced a new album of unashamed catchy tunes and singalong choruses, decidedly retro in flavour with playful nods to the songwriting idiom of his youth. Possibly irrelevant but decidedly not irreverent.

No hidden meaning-just Top 20 leanings.

Reviews

This album offers nine slick hummable songs, some of which remind us in many ways of music by The Pearlfishers. Our favourite cuts include "The First Time," "You've Got the Love That Matters," and "I Just Want You to Tell Me." The cover bears a curious resemblance to Sparks' Kimono My House album (!).

Warren's enduring passion for the infectious delights of pure melodic pop informed several excellent albums for The Korgis during the late seventies and early eighties ,along with a major singles success in the shape of the softly beguiling "Everybody's Got To Learn Sometimes." The former Stackridge stalwart's subsequent solo career has been a much more low-key affair but Warren's tuneful musical exploits always repay closer investigation nonetheless , and "Innocent Bystander" is thankfully no exception to the rule. "That's What You Do To Me" and "Have You Seen The Colours?" are the best of a catchy bunch.

As well as founding The Korgis he also co-founded Stackridge...now 65 years old, he has written and produced this album of unashamedly catchy tunes and sing-a-long choruses, decidedly retro in flavour...
