• shadows of knight Shadows of Knight (LP, £13.75)

    label: Cherry Red Phonograph

    Three years gone from their massive hit, "Gloria", only one original member remained in the band; lead singer, Jim Sohns. Thinking the world wasn't done with him yet, he assembled a band and inked a deal with the hit-makers Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz and cut a record, which produced one final hit for the group in "Shake" and this self-titled LP. A bit of a hit chasing LP, its all over the map stylistically, from the expected snotty R&B to psychedelic excursions to hard rock to pop. Although this might sound off-putting at first, the album rewards with later listens as the record has some of the best songs of the Shadows of Knights brief career.
