In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

Background
I'd call it a case of record label and management interference. After Malloy's sensational big -label debut 1992, 'Ceilings And Walls' is a case of soft pop-rock and ballads, a complete turnaround from two year before. I'll put a suggestion up and say that RCA were looking for the next Michael Bolton, and coupled with Mitch's good looks, RCA probably thought they were onto a winner. I'm not going to bag Mitch because I really admire his music and what he's done on his own bat, both as a musician and producer, and to be fair, his vocal work on 'Ceilings And Walls' is still pretty good - for what it is. Just that the selection of songs are so mushy.


The Songs
Don't be expecting anything resembling his work from 1992. You won't find it here. I'm not really going to run through the songs here, for me personally it's too upsetting to consider.. lol! If I can say anything, it would be to mention the two best songs on the CD: 'Where Love Is No Stranger' and 'Say Whatever's On Your Heart'. Mainly because these are the only two tunes to show any sign of life. The cover of Champaign's 'How 'Bout Us' was so totally ill-conceived, I'm thinking 'face-palm' moment. Anyways..


In Summary
As it turns out, RCA threw in the towel after this. Or was it the other round? Malloy should feel totally aggrieved at the mis-direction of the label-heads who all should have been lined up against a wall and pelted with paint-balls. Still, Mitch was good enough to carry on into the future, and continues to release music closer to his preferred style of acoustic/hard rock with a hint of Nashville sheen; the city he now lives in.

I actually really like this album, it's got a nice late night mellow feel. I agree about How 'Bout Us, but I have never liked that song generally no matter who did it.
