referencing It's A Sad Thing, 7", Promo, UP 1133
Ray's next single, issued 6 months after The Drifter. It's A Sad Thing is a MONSTER of a record, from it's bass intro, brass fanfare and in comes Ray accompanied by chime bars, backing vocalists and soon, a chorus featuring a full orchestra. The middle eight is a latin-mariacchi affair, again, string laden, leading up to the climactic last chorus where Ray sings his heart out, but to no avail - she's not coming back.
A magnificent arrangement once again by Arnold Goland, and a fantastic vocal by Ray. Ten out of Ten
