"Show Me" still grabs my attention every time...this gorgeously lilting ballad is a track that best exemplifies not only the best of Glenn Jones, but the ethos of the day. It makes me cry to think that a set like this will never be recorded again - especially by a label such as Sony. What first drew me to Glenn Jones was his spine-tingling performance on Norman Connors' "Melancholy Fire" back in 1980. That sort of sinuous, yet tender, soulful performance is exactly what "Show Me" allows our hero to do. If only he would be able to do this again as recent sets have been...seriously lacklustre...to say the least. Glenn has got smoothness and he can also let go big style - check out his roaring, soaring passionate style on Leon Sylvers' "Meet Me Halfway there" and see what this giant can do! The Solar sound is one that really energises me...so this, his then contemporary work with the Spinners and the Whispers was so spot on! "Everlasting Love" is nothing short of perfect, and certainly superior to the crass "On The Floor" - but what a phenomenal album from a phenomenal year. AND we can enjoy it all over again..with extras!!!
