70s Soulful Scousers, THE REAL THING are enjoying something of a revival at the moment. Their hit songs ‘You To Me Are Everything’ and ‘Can’t Get By Without You’ are all over the radio, soul connoisseurs are re-discovering tunes like ‘Love Takes Tears’ and ‘You’ll Never Know What You’re Missing’ while their ‘Children Of The Ghetto’ has became a Brit jazz standard as well as being covered by Mary J Blige and Philip Bailey.
With forty years behind them, the band is still touring and their current tour reaches a climax at The Jazz Café, London Saturday 23rd August.
The current Real Thing line up features three of the original vocalists, Chris Amoo, Eddie Amoo and Dave Smith and the show features all the band’s hits plus well known soul and funk classics from the likes of Kool and the Gang and Chic.
