There’s a small but perfectly formed body of opinion that holds that Billy Fury’s Wondrous Place is one of the most perfect pop records of all time – moody and magnificently atmospheric.
So then, this, which just popped up on the iPod – a re-recording from 1963. Galumphing beat, unnecessary brass and organ fills, pointless vocal frills: a great song rendered unlistenable. And not particularly attractive in 1963, I wouldn’t have thought.
