The skinny: This sweet looking and sweet sounding piece of wax was a surprise pick up on Record Store Day back in April. “Marchin’ already” had just landed at the number six spot in a seriously loaded list when I counted down my top ten favourite albums of 1997 around that same time. Some of you might remember the track below as backing the opening credits of “Lock stock and two smoking barrels” but it had already climbed the UK charts the previous year. This and the rest of the album take traditional blue rock and soul and give it a modern bent. Brings back so many memories.
Standout track: “Hundred mile high city”
