The Gladiators: Soul Originators

Vivien Goldman, Sounds, 29 April 1978

ALBERT GRIFFITHS has interesting hands. The fingers are stubby, square but deft, workman's hands. His manner is straightforward, workmanlike, direct, too. And if you do yourself the favour of checking out the singing abilities of A. Griffiths Esq., you'll find that it all matches up as expected – Albert sings without artifice, without affectation. He just sings like he's got good sense.
