Junior Walker & the Allstars, Freddie King, Jimmy Cliff: Saville Theatre, London

Norman Jopling, Record Mirror, 21 October 1967

IT WAS A 'soul show' at the Saville last Sunday, in the very widest sense of the term. Jimmy Cliff started off, and when he didn't get too much response to his version of 'When A Man Loves A Woman' (except for laughs) he turned to ska, which both he and the Shakedown Sound performed well.
