Five: Struck By Lightning

Finders Keepers must be kicking themselves they didn’t get the reissue rights to Five’s 1972 funk-folk classic, Struck By Lightning, which hit the shops yesterday. It’s like Christine Harwood and Susan Christie, only better. It’s perhaps closer in spirit and execution to Labi Siffre’s 1971 album, The Singer And The Song, a 24-carat masterpiece that hasn’t ever quite got the widespread admiration and love it merits.
