Notable songs on this album include the groovy first single, ‘Put A Little Love On Me’, full of raw Funk bass lines and smooth Lynton Naismith organ paired with dazzling and driving yet subtle guitar licks giving it a slight Calypso groove. This winning formula was continued into the second single ‘You And I’, with the guitar coming forward and the group really showcasing their vocal chemistry from the opening. DELEGATION turned up the disco for ‘Heartache No. 9’ adding a powerful string and horn section to a track that is currently receiving an overdue renaissance on the UK club scene.
