Lou Christie - Lightnin' Strikes album FLAC

Lightnin' Strikes ‎(LP, Album, Mono). MGM Records, MGM Records. Side two is not just the the monster hit Lightning Strikes and five other also rans. There are at least two other selections on this side that have the word hit written all over them, plus three other very worthy album cuts ( Jungle, Baby We’ve Got To Run Away, and Diary ). Of particular note is Christie’s use of female background singers who play an essential part in his overall sound. This is as much of his trademark as is the falsetto, and adds an exciting element that is rare in most male vocals.

Lou Christie hit number one with the title track of this album, Lightnin' Strikes, and it is a perfect three-minute pop tune produced by the legendary Charles Calello.

Sure, in 1965-1966 the hit single was the be-all and end-all, but Lou Christie showed more promise than the blasé version of "Love Is Like a Heatwave" displays.
