Description

Pat Arnold – Andrew Loog Oldham’s “First Lady of Immediate” – came to the UK as a backing singer for Ike & Tina Turner. Mick Jagger encouraged her to stay on in London and go solo: her first backing band became The Nice. Cat Stevens was allegedly so impressed by her version of The First Cut Is The Deepest that he stopped performing the song live.

PP Arnold’s most satisfying artistic collaboration was with label-mates the Small Faces. Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane wrote (If You Think You’re) Groovy specifically for PP, and her vocal on Tin Soldier was a crucial part of the song’s success. More recently she has sung with Roger Waters, Primal Scream, Ocean Colour Scene and Peter Gabriel.

The tracks on this EP illustrate PP Arnold’s ability to interpret a variety of material and showcase her terrific voice. On the Top Gear session she is backed by T.N.T (This ‘N’ That), whose distinctive sound features ex-Creation Eddie Phillips playing lead guitar parts on bass. Backing vocals are provided by Madeline Bell and Dusty Springfield.
