"You know the voice, Paul Jones, the original vocalist of Manfred Mann a la "Do Wah Diddy Diddy," "Sha La La," etc. To me, the best vocalist on the British Invasion scene at the time. To hear this CD in your mind's ear, take away the Manfred Mann keyboard dominated sound and replace it with the horns and orchestras that were usually associated with the Hollies and other more pop oriented acts of the time. But, at this point, Paul's unique voice was still foremost; for some reason, his vocals seemed less recognizable in later solo work, and his work with the Blues Band. Just as with Manfred Mann, he sang some fine original tunes (such as "High Time" a major UK hit if generally unknown in the USA) and very well-chosen covers. You need this, try it!!"
