Duffy Endlessly 150x150 Review: Duffy   EndlesslyThe Sixties sound comes zingily alive again with this second CD offering from Welsh songbird Aimee Duffy.T here are ten tracks on this CD, which was released on November 29th 2010.

With her beguiling voice which is a sugary mix of Dusty Springfield with a tinge of Sandie Shaw,Duffy has again scored a hit with this album.There are some nice string arrangements on Too Hurt To Dance,with its slow waltz tempo,followed by Keeping My Baby, a bouncy ballad.Kitsch? Well,possibly…but hardcore Duffy fans and converts will love it. Well Well Well is the single from the album and probably the best track, possessing the verve and force of Mercy from Rockferry, Duffy’s debut album.

Don’t Forsake Me,has Duffy in emotional classy ballad mode…her best place.A lovely yearning track this one; a real tearjerker. Endlessly,the title track,is very soully-a nod to Billie Holliday in this song, and it doesn’t strain Duffy’s voice as much as some of the other tracks on this CD. This album was produced and co-written with Duffy by Albert Hammond and it was written and recorded in New York and London over the past year. Endlessly is a classy, shiny second album from the Welsh Dusty Springfield.
