Simply Red
Picture Book

  (Item #: simplpictu_1901) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side one and a side two that's right up there with it, this UK pressing has a lot going for it - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • "Holding Back the Years" may be the best track the band ever recorded, and it probably sounds better here than you ever imagined it could
  • Big, full and lively, with a solid bottom end and excellent clarity - this is the sound you want for Picture Book
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The band finds a steady R&B groove reminiscent of '60s Stax house band the MG's, and, as with the MG's, it's all in the service of a big-voiced soul singer, in this case a British redhead."

Equally enjoyable are the ebullient "I'm Gonna Sit in 'Til You Give In" and "My Baby's Comin' Home," as they bear the distinct presence of King's nimble guitar craft."
