0 Simply Red/Terence Trent D’Arby SECC, Finneston. 7.30pm. Simply Red (see Feature) preview their new album, which on the evidence of the first single, may be an advance on the debut, ‘Picture Book’. Terence, etc is the latest CBS mega-soul hype, the
difference being that in this instance a lot ofwhat has been written has a basis in truth. The current single, ‘If You Let Me Stay‘ should be purchased immediately.
