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

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

Jacklyn - 1996 Marble Rose

ARTIST: Jacklyn
ALBUM: Marble Rose
LABEL: Long Island Records
YEAR: 1996


LINEUP: Jacklyn - vocals * Peter Van De Kletersteeg - guitars, bass, keyboards * Ronald Willemse - guitars, bass, keyboards, production

TRACK LISTING: 01 Voices * 02 My Love Will Stay * 03 Into The Light * 04 Heartbreaker * 05 Keep Goin' * 06 Waterfall * 07 Little Girl * 08 Questions & Answers * 09 One More Chance * 10 I Can't Love * 11 Broken Heart * 12 Marble Rose * 13 We Can Try * 14 Where Does Your Mind Go

Here's a Dutch singer who was part of the mid 90's roster on Long Island Records. Jacklyn delivers a set in keeping with a band like Dante Fox, though a touch heavier and certainly more dynamic. Musically partnered with Ronald Willemse, who has associations with Robby Valentine, Jacklyn began building her singing career in the early 90's with Ronald after session work credits to her name during the late 80's included Zinatra. A three track demo by the duo called 'Marble Rose' would surface in 1992, a follow-up demo in 1995 called 'Second Look' was released. By this stage, Peter Van De Kletersteeg had come onboard. This demo resulted in Long Island Records coming onboard, culminating in a full-scale debut CD, containing a whopping 14 tracks!

The Songs
Jacklyn leads off with the effortless 'Voices'. Some nice vocal work here, plus the guitars are cutting, as they are throughout the album. 'Into The Light' features some rampant guitar riffs to start out with and is a solid effort. 'Heartbreaker' provides mellow parts in between the heavier passages. I love the pumping bass on 'Keep Goin', but it's Jacklyn's perfect vocal which sells this track to one and all. Don't be thinking ballads on the song-title 'Waterfall'. This one drives hard, and there's nigh on a teary moment to be found. 'Little Girls' continues the power-mode created by the trio, but by the time we reach the two/thirds stage of the CD, the triumvirate of 'I Can't Love', 'Broken Heart and 'Marble Rose' prove Jacklyn's credentials as a top-notch melodic rock performer. On the other hand, 'One More Chance' could be a heavier version of Romeos Daughter, whereas 'We Can Try' flows quite nicely, things are less fiery here, which provides some sonic relief.

In Summary
Fans of female fronted melodic hard rock/AOR should take to Jacklyn's music like a duck to water. The music is very well put together, perhaps the guitar sound could have been tempered somewhat, while the use of programmed drums wasn't such a drawback, all things considered. She happens to be very easy on the eye too! No invitations needed.
