Review by Jason Barnard
The online reviews for this 12″ 45rpm yellow vinyl release by Richard John-Riley have been phenomenal but does it live up to the hype?
Yes, Side A’s extended mix of ‘I Can’t Tell You (How This Feels)’ is a thing of beauty. It’s 10 minutes of prog-synthness hypnotic perfection with echoes of meddle era Floyd, Stockhausen and George Harrison.
Side B’s ‘Your Honesty’ acts as a great counterpoint to the a-side – poignant lyrics, sparser production but no less appealing.
Clearly a great talent, there’s a few copies of Richard’s 2006 album, ‘Not If But When’ also still available. Grab this superb limited edition 12″ plus the LP while you can.
