The Chimes - The Chimes 1990

CBS Records 466481-1

When The Chimes released 1-2-3, I feared the worst. I suspected another Pop/Soul band to lower the tone of British Dance music. Heaven was a good quality, stronger song but it wasn't until I heard an album track that I realised there was something special here.

It was Stronger Together that convinced me that I needed to buy this album and what a great decision that was. Every track on the album is strong with 1-2-3 being (IMHO) the weakest of the collection. The Chimes managed to do for I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, what Mica Paris would later do for One. U2 ballads seem to translate well to soul arrangements. This is an album that would be well worth having on CD if it's been released?

Worth mentioning here that Pauline Henry was the voice of The Chimes but the main man was Michael Peden, who also produced YoYo Honey.

  1. The Summer Breeze remix of 'Heaven' featuring the guitar from 'Love will bring us back together' by Roy Ayers rocked too!

  2. I still play this CD (yes it was released as a CD) alot. I work as a aerobic intructor and I use some tracks for the stretch and people ALWAYS comes up and ask me what it is. I usually play, Love Comes To Mind, True Love (the single remix), Love So Tender or I Still Haven't Found... Heaven always puts me in a good mood, especially the Physical Mix that's on the CD as a bonustrack.
