A London based band, formed in 1966, and headed by talented singer, Steve Ellis, Their music ranges from pop, to pure, Motown, Northern soul,type sounds, to, R& B, and psychedelic sounds of the late 60s.
At last a CD featuring all the Love Affair hits plus the best of the LP tracks.
Really a mod group along the lines of the Small Faces, the Love Affair achieved success with highly produced pop tunes often featuring vocalist Steve Ellis only. This was a departure from their original sound and led to difficulties for the group.
All the great late 60's hits are here -"Everlasting Love", "Rainbow Valley", "Day Without Love", "Bringing On Back The Good Times" "One Road" and "Baby I Know". They still sound FAB. This cd also features some worthwhile LP tracks by the original group like "Hush" and "Handbags and Gladrags" together with a few recent recordings by frontman Steve Ellis. He was still a teenager at the time of the big hits and had an incredible soulful voice, easily the equal of Marriott and Daltrey. ~
