One of the rare singles which received
rave reviews from every paper when it was released
Stand by for a sizeable hit! Yellow
River is great. Ideal for dancing, and one
that goes down well in the clubs. I wish the group
all the luck in the world.
New Musical Express:
Now, here's a disc I like very much indeed. It's straightforward,
uncomplicated pop, and within this category, it fulfils
its fuction admirably. The trio, led by soloist Jeff
Christie, dispenses a solid, fast-paced beat, and
the voal is personable and appealing. Above all, the
tune is immediately catchy. With the right breaks,
this could happen!
Disc and Music Echo:
Not exactly a subtle record, but I bet you'll be whistling
it in a few days. Which means it's loaded with commercial
appeal. Christie, a new three-piece group, wrote this
number, which has a jolly thumping rhythm, tricky
bits of guitar and some nice piano. The chorus will
drive you mad.
Outsider with chances, full of appeal!
Music No 1:
If this gets the airplays, it will be very successful.
Music Business Weekly:
Whole thing moves nicely, like to see it do well.
Hereford Evening News:
One of the most enjoyable discs of the week!
The song is very fast paced, and VERY, VERY addictive.
Be warned people, once you listen to this song, getting
it out of your head is next to impossible. The song
starts off with a bass guitar rift, which then turns
into a tri-instrumental interlude (Which is the bass
rhythm of the song), and fades into the background
as Jeff Christie takes over the vocals (00:07).
The feel of the song is really upbeat,
and it puts a warm smile on ones face. Before
you know it, the first chorus begins at 00:37. The
chorus is the most addictive part of the song. You
just CANT get it off your head!
The way the vocals and the rhythm
change makes the chorus irresistible. There is hardly
a gap between the chorus and the second stanza (2
seconds, to be precise!), so en garde! The chorus
starts again (the gap between the two choruses seems
like 10 seconds, bu its actually 30 seconds.
This is what happens when a song
is fast paced you completely lose track of
We have a straight on winner here!
A hands-down 10/10 for this must-listen-to, guys!
