Rates up there with "The Blues Brothers"
21 May 2002 | by (Falkland Islands (at the moment)) – See all my reviews

This two parter rates, as far as I am concerned, along with "The Commitments" and "The Blues Brothers" as one of the best screenplays to deal with Soul music. Showing, as they all do, that it makes no difference what colour or nationality you are, Soul is for and about us all. I taped this series when first (in fact the the only time)it was broadcast, I watch it time and time again and the most criminal aspect of it is..........the BBC never released a soundtrack to it. Not only were there classic tracks included but we never got to hear the full versions of "pickin' up the pieces" and "like a babe in arms". Any fans out there, lets see if we can't get this out, and to quote McShane "lets keep on keepin' on"
