Simply Red Anyone?

I love them. Mick's voice is amazing!

Favorite songs:
So Many People, Fairground, The Spirit of Life, Holding Back the Years, So Beautiful, If You Don't Know Me By Now, and Stars.

I highly recommend Simply Red to anybody who doesn't know them that well.

Holding Back the Years:

Money's too Tight is about the only decent thing they did, and they didn't write it. And Mick Hucknall is a tool.

He does have a great voice.

I remember when they came out. As a kid, I recall thinking how different-sounding they were. Wasn't Mick really poor at one point, and on the street? I seem to remember Casey Kasem saying something like that before announcing they had reached the "number one spot" on his countdown. I used to tape that show every week on cassette.

I lost track of them after "Blue", though I've always wanted to check out "Love and the Russian Winter" (even if that is one of the most pretentious album titles ever!).

I'd probably say "Picture Book", "A New Flame" and "Life" are my favorites. "Stars" and "Blue" are pretty good, but not great. And "Men and Women" is meh

I prefer the more live instrument/jazz sound of the fist few albums than the more modern/electronic beat sounds, which is the direction they were headed when I stop being interested.

"Love and the Russian War" is a fantastic album. It has lyrics full of meaning and the beats are hopping and his voice is soaring.
