THE KORGIS ‘Kollection’ Angel Air SJPCD204 (2005)

The Korgis

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 melodies.
