Tell Him: The Decca Years

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
This is a superb collection comprised of Billie Davis' singles for England's Decca Records, most of them dating between 1967 and 1970 with four tracks from her 1963 stint with the label, and augmented with a handful of tracks from her self-titled 1970 album.

There's not a loser in the bunch and, in fact, the songs all show an amazing consistency despite origins as different as Joe Cocker, Carole King, Ian Anderson yes, she covered "Living in the Past", and Neil Diamond. Strangely enough, the appending of the four early Decca sides at the end of the CD is sort of jarring, throwing listeners back to an earlier though still eminently enjoyable era of British pop
ock. The sound is excellent throughout and the CD comes with an excellent career overview on Davis.
