…Tape saturation and distortion abound on a collection that boasts outstanding homages to R&B classics, alongside four strong original compostitions. Jimmy Reed’s 1959 ‘Come Love’, Sonny Boy Williams II 1963 standard ‘Help Me’ and Price & Walsh’s sublime ‘Ain’t No Love in The Heart of The City’ are just three of the timeless numbers given the Blues Foundation treatment on this stunning release.

A VERY strong set from beginning to end, “A Clip Round The Ear” is an absolute knockout of an album. Glenn Prangnell continues to amaze with his extremely sharp songwriting skills and sense of melody that carry on and build upon the very best of British Invasion era classic music. The soul and blues that Suzi Chunk bring add a depth and power that very few other current female singers can even come close to touching. This combination, known affectionately to fans as Unc N’ Chunk, blows the doors off every time. For a band that has made a huge impression on me from the first, I can easily say this is their best album to date and that’s no small statement. Anyone appreciating intelligent, witty and sharp lyrics combined with the very best of true rock, pop and soul, pick up this album. Unlike the other times you’ve caught a “Clip Round The Ear”, you’ll be thrilled you got this one.
