The Most Beautiful Girl In The World was the follow-up to BBC Top Tunes in late 1974. It’s a consistent LP with a breezy title track, a mournful version of The Pallisers and some great swinging lounge in When You Smile.

Other memorable tracks include the downbeat Solitaire and the funky dollybird brass of The Ricochet Theme. Beat-diggers may dig the groovy version of Mah-Na, Mah-Na that closes the album.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
