THIS WAS ON THE CD SHELF NEXT TO YESTERDAY'S OFFERING
And it couldn't be anymore of a contrast.
From the winner of the 1998 BRIT Award for Best British Male Solo Artist.
mp3 : Finley Quaye - Your Love Gets Sweeter (Abbey Road Version)
mp3 : Finley Quaye - Your Love Gets Sweeter (Album Version)
mp3 : Finley Quaye - Everybody Knows
mp3 : Finley Quaye - Le Saint Des Delinquents
What can I say? It's a cracking wee pop song with a hint of reggae. I don't own anything else by the singer.
The BRIT was in recgnition of his debut LP Maverick A Strike which sold by the barrowload when released in 1997. By the time he got round to releasing a follow-up some three years later, his public had more or less deserted him and he's never troubled the charts since.
Strange fact pop-pickers. Finley Quaye is Scottish.
Born in Edinburgh in 1974 to a Scots mother. His dad, who he never knew when he was growing up, was from Ghana and a well-known jazz musician.
