The Korgis had a brief chart success between 1979 and 1980 with two UK
hit singles, ‘If I Had You’ and ‘Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime’ - both
included on here. Both of these are certifiable pop classics with their lush
arrangements and melodious vocals (the nearest comparison to the Korgis
sound would be fellow Brits Sad Café).
The band did a dance style version of ‘Everybody’ with DNA in 1993 but this failed to chart (again it is included on
this collection). Only one slight drawback is that a few numbers tend to
merge into one another sound-wise but at 19 tracks you are sure to find
something to enjoy.
This collection has the added bonus for fans of some newly recorded
tracks, which carry on the band's core sound of gentle melodies, plus
extensive sleeve notes. There are some demos dating back from 1978 that have
aged remarkably well.
An enjoyable collection from a band who certainly deserve more credit and
exposure than they got. One for fans of well crafted and timeless pop
