Tony Christie and Róisín Murphy – 7 Hills – a genius collaboration

I loved Tony Christie’s Made in Sheffield album and I am very pleased that the follow up, Now’s The Time, is almost as good.

This track is stunning. 7 Hills is a country style soul duet (albeit with an electronic back beat) with Roisin Murphy, the golden voice of Moloko.

I also really like Get Christie which features a sample from Roy Budd’s soundtrack to Get Carter with some great Jarvis Cocker penned lyrics, and the album’s storming finale, Something Better, which descends into a genuine 60s style soul freak out.

Great tune, solid album, top bloke.

Here’s the incomparable Born to cry too
