Everything But The Girl: Cole Minors

Mark Cooper, Record Mirror, 7 August 1982


THE NAME comes from a furniture store in Hull, the tune from the songbook of the master, Cole Porter. Everything But The Girl's version of 'Night And Day' reclaims a classic from the vaults and makes it live again. Ben Watt and Tracy Thorn want to write their own classics — they've proved they can do justice to the ones we already have.
