Trojan Lovers 3

The third and final instalment from the Trojan Lovers Box Set and as per disc 1 I've gone for the covers again.

In the order that they appear on the disc the first up is Marcia Griffiths with her version of Ewan MacColl's classic The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.Very good but not on a par with the Roberta Flack version but then again nothing is .

Marcia is followed by The Inner Circle with their cover  of The Stylistic's You Make Me Feel Brand New.I've been listening to a bit of The Stylistics recently so this one was a no brainer

Finally The Uniques give us their version of You'll Lose a Precious Love a Smokey Robinson song but one best known thanks to the Temptations version.

Marcia Griffiths - First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Inner Circle - You Make Me Feel Brand New

The Uniques - You'll Lose a Precious Love


  1. The Marcia Griffiths track is surprisingly good.Actually, it is a belting version. Stylistics, you'll be listening to Leo Sayer next!

  2. Whilst mucking about on video sharng I saw this:
    At 3.5 mins it's about ten minutes too short........

    1. Agree. That's just great! 2 and a quarter million views is just about to become 2,250,005

  3. The Marcia version is ace. Love it.

  4. 2 hour documentary on Trojan Records on Sky Arts tonight.
