Songs and Ballads

“The record has a biting start with Little Duke Arthur’s Nurse, a performance of tremendous thrust and impact. If this was put down in one take—which it sounds like—my hat is raised high as the roof-tree… it’s a lovely and striking record, one of Topic’s best Revival releases for a long time.”

Nobody sleeps when Frankie Armstrong’s singing!… The track “Lady Diamond” would, if we were talking in theatrical terms, stop the show… Frankie’s chillingly bare delivery is enough to make the walls around shudder… she’s an exceptional singer and this is an exceptional record.
