THE EYES OF BLUE - DON'T ASK ME TO MEND YOUR BROKEN HEART b/w SUPERMARKET FULL OF CANS
Hailing from Wales, The Eyes Of Blue were STRONGLY influenced by the U.S soul sound, as heard on this double sider, as well as their excellent debut; a cover of The Parliaments "Heart Trouble".
The group delivers a very nice sound on both sides, and my preference falls towards "Don't Ask me...", although "Supermarket" tends to get a bit more attention. Don't get me wrong, I really dig "Supermarket" but from a songwriting perspective I find the lyrics a bit clunky (although it doesn't ruin my enjoyment of the song!)
