Galliano: The Event, Brighton

David Bennun, Melody Maker, 13 June 1992

JUST WHAT is it that's kept Galliano out of the charts? The Occult? Dodgy bar codes? Freak weather conditions? Every other funker, from the Young Disciples and the Brand New Heavies to tonight's support act, jazzer Ronny Jordan, has penetrated at least as far as the middle regions. Jesus, Acker Bilk on a backbeat would have to be beaten down with sticks before it fell short of the Top 20.
