Paul Carrack Marks Work Anniversary With Big Band Covers

Five decades in a business, especially in show business, is a respectable stint, and if an artist of such experience has been successful most of the time, he deserves accolades even more. Aa a voice and a pen behind the perennial “How Long” Paul Carrack can’t complain in this regard, having numerous hits not only as a solo act but also with ACE, SQUEEZE and MIKE + THE MECHANICS, which is why the singer decided to find a different way to celebrate his work anniversary. Never a stranger to delivering classic cuts – the veteran’s 2010 album “A Different Hat” consisted mostly of those – Carrack recorded an entire set of covers.

Titled “Don’t Wait Too Long” and set for release on January 20th, 2003, this platter is comprised of strictly ’50s material – including, alongside a few obscure numbers and a contemporary titular track, Sam Cooke’s evergreen “Bring It On Home To Me” and a fresh take on “Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying” which Paul previously laid down for the aforementioned album – it sees him join forces with THE SWR BIG BAND, a German Grammy-nominated jazz ensemble. The results (watch the video below) are expectedly soulful – enough to warrant the attention of the singer fans and occasional listener alike.
