01/01/1999 Andrew Winton

..............................So can you dance to it? Of course! There are 19 tracks to get your head and feet around, a good mixture of classics and originals written by King Pleasure. The opening track Girl With The Gold Dress On sets the scene in terms of tone and tempo: not frantic, and with plenty of horns. For slow, hot 'n' steamy blues, the band's version of Sam Hopkins' Ain't It Lonesome is unbeatable: Baxter's muted trumpet takes the honours for setting the mood here, but the rest of the brass provide sterling support. Other familiar tunes are Johnny Taylor's Soft Pillow and Motown founder Berry Gordy's I'll Be Satisfied. Special mention for the instrumental Mush Mouth which will satisfy the most ardent swing dancers yearning for something fast and brassy.

King Pleasure's own opener, Happy As A Fella Can Be, Can't Get Enough Of Your Stuff, Red Headed Woman and other self-penned tracks sit comfortably with the cover versions here. Favourites from the live set include Fat Sam From Birmingham and Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash, but really, the more their gigs you've been to, the more of these you will recognise.
