Chris Farlowe - The Immediate Anthology

C'est l'histoire d'un bonhomme qui passe à côté... Malgré un 'big hit' (Out Of Time, en 1966), Chris Farlowe, un des rares chanteurs blancs de Rn'B, ne connaitra pas le succès qu'il méritait incontestablement sur ce terrain. Peu soutenu par sa maison de disques (Immediate Records) qui avait d'autre chats à fouetter, il s'en ira ensuite se perdre dans le rock progressif, le jazz mou et même le hard rock... Cette anthologie rend un bel hommage à celui qui aurait pu devenir le white-brit' Otis Redding et permet de se mettre entre les oreilles parmi ses meilleures interprétations, avec une mention particulière pour son étonnante version de 'Paint It Black'...

I found an error after downloading, cd number 1 has a mistake in the track No. 18 is not Why Do not You Change Your Ways but still Rockin 'Pneumonia 1:51 min.

Tried two times...same mistake, but I found that the cd #1 has 26 tracks and I've cancelled tracks 18.Rockin' Pneumonia (1:51) renamed number from 19 to 26 and now is OK :-)
I burned 1 cdr with the mistake only ;-)
