When this thread was started in 2004 the 'new' album under discussion was 'Where Our Love Grows', and here we are in 2018 with Swing Out Sister's latest album set for general release in June. 'Almost Persuaded' has already had limited availability since the end of 2017 as it was self released by SOS as a PledgeMusic project. The album features ten new songs by Andy Connell and Corinne Drewery, two of which are reprised in different versions to make twelve tracks in all. Here from the album is 'Happier Than Sunshine', a blissful track about bliss, appropriately enough.

Scenes of Swing Out Sister in the studio last summer recording one of the new album's many beautiful and haunting tracks, 'All in a Heartbeat':

Getting into this album big time. Love the vocal arrangement, flute and percussion on 'Which Wrong Is Right':

Okay, enough!
I understand why the Nikki Jean track prompted a retaliation (unmelodic , I know, but I - like Burt - have always had a soft spot for city kids). Nevertheless, SOS isn`t all THAT great.
Here are a couple of madeleines from the `60s for the old folks:
The first was sung by Lani Hall, a founding group member who later married label-owner Herb Alpert and continues to record and tour with him.
The second was performed by Karen Philip who left the group to pursue an acting career after recording an unreleased solo album. I have been unable to learn what became of her after her character in the first season of the TV version of MASH was written out of the series.

Here's a snippet from 2015 of what was to become 'Don't Give the Game Away' from the new album set for general release next month. While I don't think the album as a whole is up to the standard of 'Where Our Love Grows', two or three of the tracks must rank among the best things they've ever recorded. More on those if and when they become available on YT.
