I'm Alive  performed by  Don Fardon  (1969)
Composed by James-Lucia
Arranged by Nicky Welsh
From: Scotland
Recommended by tinks [profile] on Sunday 10th June 2001

Awesome reworking of the milqetoast Tommy James hit, using Sweet Inspirations-ish background singers, infectious bubbling percussion, rousing horns and some of the fuzziest guitar ever to appear on any Scottish person's record. An impeccable Miki Dallon production and a great example of British blue-eyed soul.

from I've Paid My Dues (Decca)
available on CD - Indian Reservation/I've Paid My Dues (Edsel)

  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Very swinging indeed...never heard of Don...I'm gonna track him down though.

Very American 1969 sound...for a Scottish guy.

  20 Apr 07 ·artlongjr: I thought he was English, not Scottish! Anyhow, I have
two 45s by him, "Indian Reservation" and "Lola". Of course, Paul Revere and the Raiders covered "Indian Reservation" and had a number one hit. Fardon isn't well known here in the U.S.
