And another record we get. I immediately notice the feature of Dick Rivers on the last track and this absolutely wakes me up. It says to have some gipsy, balkan and klezmer tones, but it sounds rather Irish Pub influenced to me (Irish Pubs are everywhere in the world, like McDonalds though). It’s only when they actually play klezmer that they sound the more balkano-klezmerish on the album. Bridgette Amofah is their lead singer, and she indeed has an emotional voice, but not too expressive as far as I’m concerned. Dick Rivers is the peer of french 60’s rockers like Johnny Halliday, Franck Alamo, Sylvie Vartan or Eddy Mitchell (most of whom I’m sure you ignore anyway). And Dick delivers a real nice vocal performance at the very end of the album. One track, one point.
