Peter Andre wears many hats; the reality television star hat, the businessman hat, the avid charity supporter hat and the mainstream singer hat amongst others.
He has been gracing the music charts since the nineties with his debut self-titled album release appearing in May 1993 (the year this writer was born).
‘Mack The Knife’ will most definitely be a live favourite when Andre tours this album in 2016 and the band consisting of Adrian Meehan (drummer), Adam King (bassist) and Rich Milner (keyboardist) really keep the groove going.‘Ain’t That A Kick In The Head’ is the classic written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen and features that iconic brass intro that just paints a picture of Las Vegas in your mind.Peter does feel at home on this number but it does stray too far away from the original composition.‘Little Miss Notting Hill’ was written by Southwood and the five-piece harmony boy band The Overtones which makes sense as on first listen to this I immediately went ‘This would be perfect for The Overtones!
’ For me, this is Andre at his most comfortable as he sings about a woman who catches his eye and he nicknames her ‘Little Miss Notting Hill’.
Now unfortunately we aren’t treated to the gentleman in the original who informed us ‘Baby girl! ’ but they’ve kept the percussion and added subtle drum hi-hats. ’ though (Sorry for the pun) In conclusion, this is for current and loyal Peter Andre fans and not the occasional listener.
