Cliff Richard – Good News [EMI 1967] / Sweet Honey in the Rock – Good News [Flying Fish 1981]
If compelled to receive Good News, it is perfectly clear whose news this correspondent would rather hear. Indeed, Cliff’s platter would be a strong contender for my ‘Purgatory Picks’ radio show. The use of the two words of the album title for the entire text of the newspaper cover (other than the song list) gives you some idea of the paucity of creativity etched into this one. Avoid. Even at Easter.
Saw Sweet Honey in the Rock in Melbourne in the early 80s. Brilliant voices, uplifting harmonies.
