Raunchy performance by '60s R&B star

Product Overview

Overall rating:

Score 3


It comes as something of a surprise to discover that Chris Farlowe?one of the voices of British R&B in the ’60s and singer of the original version of “Handbags And Gladrags”?is still recording and in fiery form at the age of 62. Recorded in London last year, Farlowe That! finds Farlowe working through a 14-track programme, giving it loads in every phrase.

Perhaps one for the older buyer, this raunchy album, which includes an appearance by Van Morrison, is anachronistic, but none the worse for it.
