Edgar Summertyme - 'Sense Of Harmony'

Another heroic masterpiece from rock’s lost golden boy

  • Release Date 13 Aug, 2012
  • Record Label Viper
9 / 10
In a parallel universe, Edgar ‘Summertyme’ Jones is as revered as Messrs Marr, Weller and Gallagher, N – his three most vocal fans. Jones has been making music since the early ’90s, when he spearheaded Liverpool’s great nearly band The Stairs, and his latest opus is his most triumphant since 2005’s ‘Soothing Music For Stray Cats’, which itself is one of the last decade’s finest albums. It breathes life: from the gloriously rhythmic exoticism of ‘On And On’ (owing much to the great Latin label, Fania Records), to ‘I Would Do Anything’, which is the tastiest song Amy Winehouse never wrote. Another heroic masterpiece from rock’s lost golden boy, then.
