Some Sunday Sade Soul
Without consciously trying I appear to have acquired Sade's entire catalogue due to my charity shop forays.
The final piece in the jigsaw was 1998' s Love Is Stronger Than Pride
It is the notoriously difficult third album and to me it is probably the weakest of the bunch.
It starts off promisingly but thereafter fades pretty badly sounding suspiciously like Muzak on occasions.
There had been a three year gap from 1985's Promise and it sold in the region of 300,000 half as many as it's predecessor. By the time the follow up the much better Love Deluxe was released in 1992 she had certainly lost the attention of the mainstream.
Still the album was recorded in France and the Bahamas so I am sure that the band enjoyed themselves.
More Soul of the non Sade variety next Sunday.
Sade - Love Is Stronger Than Pride
