I heard the Dexy's version first but Cliff Bennett's is excellent , usual Bennett quality . .

Dexy's and Bennett's are both good version but I do prefer The Drifters' version: the rhythm section and vocal delivery are a shade more relaxed which makes it just a little slinkier if you know what I mean.  I have this version on Good Times, probably my favourite Kent compilation.  It's more or less full of stuff from Atlantic and Stax and this is the last track on side two.

Can we get a link, AC. . 8)

BTW, Cliff Bennett wouldn't be allowed nowadays to appear in a TV show, not without an orthodontic treatment. But the man could sing. In a fairer world, the Mike Cotton Sound, for instance, would have been huge, but they're a great band for me and that's what really counts.

It used to be said that a gap between the front teeth was the sign of a good singer, which was certainly true of Bennett. .

I think Percy Sledge had a nice gap too, and what a voice!

Met Kevin at Gatwick last year,we were having breakfast after getting off flight from the states. He walked past and I just had to go over for a chat and to shake his hand. Really nice guy to talk to. I've been in the vicinity of quite a few celebs etc over the years...he is the only one I've felt compelled to speak to.

From seeing him in interviews in more recent times , Kevin does now seem to be a lot more sociable . By his own admission , that wasn't the case in the past . .

They were fantastic live , the songs really had a lot more bite on stage and Kevin's voice was immense. .

I pretty much dropped them after Too Rye Ay but like the sound of his latest stuff . .
