Shortly after the release of the Cult Flick “The Commitments” and the million copies selling soundtrack with the same name, Andrew Strong decided to quit the group and start working on a solo career. He recorded with or hit the stage with the biggest of the scene and names like the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Deep Purple and Bryan Adams where household names for Mr Strong for a while. But as you can imagine, the success of one film wasn’t enough to keep him endlessly running and thus Andrew Strong has to get back to his commitments years to remind us how good he is! And he is definitely very good…. The music on this disc is a collection of fine R&B classics, some forgotten gems and a handful of totally unknown songs. Amongst the Classics you’ll find Gimme Some Lovin’, Hard To Handle, In The Midnight Hour, Mustang Sally, Take Me To The River, Try A Little Tenderness an many more.
For fifteen tracks long you’ll get yourself a great party that isn’t spoiled for a single moment.
To complete the release you’ll find also a bonus CD with a handful of studio duets in the same style. It’s not the Commitments; but it is Andrew Strong getting back to his Commitments years.
