Good Times: The Stately Sound of London

Frank Broughton, Nuphonic Records, 2000

"IT'S VERY SIMPLE," says Norman Jay behind his shades, as we drive round the hallowed sites of the Notting Hill Carnival. "Good Times is about… good times." He shrugs and changes gear, there's no point making it any more complicated. "GOOD… TIMES…" You can't help hearing the next line of the song, pushing the point home: Leave your cares behind.
