T IS FOR TALIZMAN

Talizman was an act on housey housey Cowboy Records. They had but a solitary release – “Only You” – in 1993.

Written by A Webb and C Martin and produced by A Webb (he doesn’t seem to have released anything else), it never struck me as the strongest of releases and time hasn’t altered my view. The Balearic mix is probably the strongest. But reveiwers on discogs would disagree “A real one-off, this is one of the tunes that makes me think “ah, it’s summer!” even when it isn’t. Though much remixed, the original version remains best, with its shuffling beat and guitar riff. It does have a rather silly ending, but I think they can be forgiven for that.” and “The best record to be released on Cowboy by a mile, a quirky track with a great vocal, they should have been releasing more stuff like this rather than getting stuck into the progressive dirge of the time.” I guess you’re going to have to decide for yourself.
