Lisa STANSFIELD sings golden oldies and newer songs from SWING RCA/BMG 9 74321 669232 [41:00]





We are breaking our rule not to include 'pop' music reviews because this is such an glorious and infectious collection that we just had to include a brief review. The film set in Liverpool is, to quote BMG press office's blurb: 'a heart-warming story, triumphant story about working-class friends who despite obstacles, follow their dream to form a swing band. This is the exuberant style of music from the 30, 40s and 50s but mostly it brings back memories of the stoicism of the home front in the 1940s and the years of austerity that succeeded World War II. Classics like Ain't What You Do, Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens and Mack the Knife are belted out with real abandon and there are quieter more romantic numbers like Our Love Is Here To Stay too. A nice fun disc.

The contents are:

1) Ain't What You Do

2) Ain't Nobody Here Bu Us Chickens

3) Baby I Need Your Love

4) Gotta Get On This Train

5) Martin's Theme

6) Why Do We Call It Love

7) Our Love is Here To Stay

8) Love's Theme

11) The Best is Yet to Come

12) Martin's Theme (reprise)
