Album Review

Dee Clark's debut album ranges across the music spectrum, from the pop side of R&B for the opening, "Just Keep It Up," to the slower, more mournful, and purer R&B of "Blues Get Off My Shoulder." The hit single "Hey Little Girl" is present, but its Bo Diddley beat sounds a bit out of place juxtaposed with quietly elegant ballads such as "Whispering Grass" — as does the rocking "Seven Nights."
