Poker are proud to finally present Dawn Of A New Day (1968) and Experience (1969) as a value-for-money two on one release. Two classic solo albums from Norfolk, Virginia’s finest Margie Day, originally released on RCA in the late 60s and both albums now making their CD debut here. Blessed with a wide and secure vocal range, Margie is capable of the belting approach or of the tender whisper: Soulful Pop / Jazz and R&B are just some of the epithets that could be applied to her infectious vocals. Check out the tight-throated delivery; the tremendous feeling she has for changing timbres, tough to tender; the elongated syllables with mounting tension that can leave you wrung emotionally dry. And if that isn’t enough the whole package is enhanced by some charming and entertaining notes and a full-colour booklet featuring label repros and some gorgeous memorabilia.
Mojo Magazine awarded a very respectable 3 stars to this CD.
