How'd I Do Dat??? (Parlophone)
With the name Bentley Rhythm Ace now synonymous with genial but wholly
average dance music, you have to wonder where it all went wrong. Everyone seems
to have it in for Richard March and Mike Stokes when in fairness
they're merely doing what's expected of them. The deficiency of memorable tunes
on their overcooked 'For Your Ears Only' album hasn't helped matters and
you can't see 'How'd I Do Dat???' silencing their many critics, featuring,
as it does, a typically exuberant vocal from ex-Black Grape rapper Kermit
but really little else of note. They are Bad Manners with a 303 and their
career has reached its nadir. The only way is up. Potentially.
