David Alexander –Love, Love, Love


David Alexander –Love, Love, Love/ Missy –Rare Earth RES 112 (1974 UK)
Kicking off with some loud pounding drums swamped in reverb, Love, Love, Love then develops into a semi-Stonesian rocker more often than not recalling Rockmore Williams (Lady Rock). David Alexander has a strong voice with some cool snarly moves and inflections sometimes recalling Roy Loney (check out how the way he sings the word “City” –just like the Groovies’ City Lights). Both songs and production are by studio wizard Phil Cordell (Springwater / Dan The Banjo Man), but not sure which David Alexander this one is, perhaps he was the Welsh dude behind Taste The Wine on Penny Farthing that same year? A cracking song and performance in any case…

Maybe Grapefruit Dave's brother? Definitely has that Marcus Hook feel...
