Product Description:

Personnel: Phil Harris , Alan "Bam" King (vocals, guitar); Paul Carrack (vocals, keyboards); Chris Hughes , Mick Eve, Bud Beadle (horns); Fran Byrne (drums, percussion).
Five-A-Side, Ace's debut album, is notable for introducing the world to the soulful singing talent of Paul Carrack, especially on the hit "How Long," which went to number one on some charts in 1975. The band has a low-key style, frequently dominated by Carrack's piano and organ work, that is sometimes suggestive of Traffic and of the Tulsa country-rock sound of J.J. Cale, Delaney & Bonnie, and Leon Russell, although they never work up quite as much of a sweat as the last two. Already road-weary when they made this album, Ace, especially in Carrack's lyrics, comments extensively on the travails of being in a struggling rock & roll band. Even "How Long," which sounds like the lament of a lover betrayed, is really about somebody quitting the group. All of which makes the irony of the songs being their sole hit all the more acute. ~ William Ruhlmann
