Su Pollard - Su
How can I say anything bad about this? It would feel like kicking a little puppy.
I'll have a go though, as this record contains some of the very worst saxophone solos of the 1980s - only the sax solo from Squeeze's 'Hourglass' compares! And Wax's 'Bridge to Your Heart' thinking about it.
Of course it's not all bad sax, Su throws out a few belters here, Su's 'You've Lost that Lovin' Feeling' is a power ballad worthy of praise - Bonny Tyler couldn't hold a candle to it frankly. Of course there's 'Starting Together' here as well, which ought to be played at every wedding - remember, the old phrase 'Something borrowed, something blue, something old and something Su' should render divorce lawyers hungry everywhere.
So treat yourself to some 80s hideousness akin to the fashion choices displayed on the back of this LP, I particularly like Su's unicorn hairpiece in these shots.
Sample the matrimonial magnificence of 'Starting Together' below as found on Youtube, also I found an excellent rendition of 'Back In The USSR' there by Su - sadly not included on this LP.
