Though it cannot hold a candle to its predecessor, P. Arnold 's second and final Immediate album is nevertheless a dramatic offering, its greatest flaws lying more in the conflict between singer and label than in either performance or production. Occasionally the conflict works well -- the MOR heartbreaker "Angel of the Morning" is performed with such a depth of yearning purpose that no other version on earth will ever sound so majestic. Similarly, his reinventions of the songs that every singer of the age apparently tackled -- "Yesterday," "Eleanor Rigby," and the Bee Gees ' "To Love Somebody" -- are wrapped in breathtaking sheen, with "Yesterday" even rivaling Alma Cogan 's definitive rearrangement in terms of freshness and emotional punch.
That Arnold herself is often overwhelmed by the strength of the arrangements carried out by longtime P.P. Arnold - Kafunta conspirator John Paul Jones is neither here nor there; played loud and booming, Kafunta has an impressiveness that doesn't simply defy criticism, it dismisses it out of hand.
