David Essex - City Lights b/w St. Amie (1976) - single

David Essex OBE (born David Albert Cook, 23 July 1947) is an English musician, singer-songwriter and actor. “City Lights” was the first single to be pulled from David Essex forth studio album ''Out On The Street''.The record presented a marked shift in direction away from the breezy pop anthems which brought him great success in 74' and 75'.”Gonna Mke You A Star” and ''Hold Me Close'' had both made the number one spot and presumably gave him the confidence to pitch something a little more hard edged as his first single for 76'.  “City Lights is an astonishing record that truly bristles with tension over the length of Five and a half minutes.Essex never sounded better than on this.
His voice positively soars over the demonic 'DUB' Bassline.
