A spirited take on an old Lewis Taylor soul record, spiking it up with some funky electro touches. Still, can’t help but feel that performing cover versions minimises Robbie’s impact; he is a personality first, musician second (which is why his gigs have always been better than his records) – if I can’t scrutinise the lyrics for salacious titbits on his latest personal dramas, I’m less inclined to pay attention.
