BLUE MINK - Real Mink

One of the giants of British pop music during the early 1970s, Blue Mink was formed in fall 1969 by keyboard player Roger Coulam, around a nucleus of musicians based at London's Morgan Studios. Bassist Herbie Flowers, guitarist Allan Parker and drummer Barry Morgan had already recorded a number of backing tracks with Roger Coulam, and so they approached soul singer Madeleine Bell and former David & Jonathan star, Roger Cook, as vocalists. All of the players were world-class, and vocalists Madeleine Bell and Roger Cook were at the top of their game. With Roger Cook & Roger Greenaway (alias David And Jonathan) providing the songwriting material, the group enjoyed a run of hits from 1969-73 including this excellent & catchy pop/soul/blues album featuring the hits "Good Morning Freedom" (later covered by Elton John) and "Our World", as well as a diverse selection of more-than-decent album tracks. The UK title of this LP was "Our World", but was released September 1970 in the USA as "Real Mink". Hear: Can You Feel It Baby; Gimme Reggae; I Lose The Game; Sweet & Sour; Our World; Good Morning Freedom; Bang, Bang Johnny's Gang After Me; You Walked Away; Silk What?; and Mind Your Business. Cook & Greenaway went on to pen The Fortunes' "You've Got Your Troubles" and The White Plains' "My Baby Loves Lovin'."
