Best Early Ben Watt

I have had a copy of this album since it was released on vinyl, (remembering lean days in my student digs)... great tunes to chillout to on a rainy day in middle England! Ben Watt has changed somewhat but I am sure you will agree this album shows that even his early solo material is quality especially "Waiting Like Mad"

Excellent and nearly forgotten

This is a terrific release! Very melodic and somewhat melancholy, but ultimately some fine music that sounds fresh nearly thirty years on. This release also includes the entirety of Ben's intriguing collaboration with Robert Wyatt ("Summer into Winter"). Although I'm also a Wyatt fan, I have to admit that I prefer the "North Marine Drive" tracks (#s 1-9). If you're a fan of EBTG you shouldn't miss this one (or Tracey Thorn's solo CD from the same time period " A Distant Shore").

Ben Watt is best known as half of the duo Everything But the Girl, which first performed together in 1982. That year, EBTG's Tracey Thorn released her solo debut, A Distant Shore, while Watt released his, North Marine Drive, the following year. Watt's LP went to number one on the U.K. indie charts and included a cover of Bob Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go." Everything But the Girl's early material was lite-jazz, but their major international breakthrough came in the dance music...
