Well there’s certainly no shortage of acts to choose from in this weeks’s edition, even if the show itself felt rushed. Unfortunately this practice of cramming as many songs into the show will be the way forward from now on. Apparently in order to fit more songs into the allocated half hour, all studio performances were restricted to 3 minutes and videos shortened to 2 minutes.
My vote this week goes to ( all 2 minutes of) Roachford and his Cuddly Toy.
Oh no. I never saw this. Was this the one where Milli Vanilli wore those controversial outfits? I know they performed this song. Anne Robinson had many many letters to her Points of View show asking for a repeat performance of their bit(s) but was always refused. I think they shown in at year end Best of Points of View.
Everywhere, wherever you look, manipulation rearing it's head.
I have voted, but not had much time to write up a review for this disjointed and unsatisfactory edition. In which too many tracks were crammed in, and cut off before any adequate length of time.
Hands up if you like Milli Vanilli? Is anybody there? Nobody then!
Apart from that the short length of the tracks makes it difficult to nominate a pick. So, in this eternal struggle, I have chosen H. E. Bates’s own personal favourite, and a few others among us, I am sure, and The Darling Buds. Kent in 1958 will never feel the same again.
