Review of Sunshine Walkers – The Best Of Kimberley Rew and Lee Cave-Berry
by Simon Phillips, WhisperinandHollerin.com
It doesn’t actually contain the big hits!! This is the sort of Best Of that avoids all the hits Kimberley has had including the song he won the Eurovision Song Contest with for the UK. His work with the Soft Boys, Katrina & The Waves and that hit The Bangles had with one of his songs and concentrates on his solo albums with Lee Cave-Berry.
The backing musicians are a stellar line-up including Mitch Easter, Peter Holsapple, Glenn Tillbroook, Will Rigby, Robyn Hitchcock, Morris Windsor and the recently departed Matthew Seligman etc.
This album is indeed one of those Simple Pleasures that should he heard over and over again and again. Oh and yes it’s a cool powerpop song with it’s own ideas on what those simple Pleasures should be.
