Mari Wilson And The Imaginations: Dingwalls

Ralph Traitor, Sounds, 19 December 1981

IT SINGS, it dances, it's an amazing Do-lt Yourself Motown Upsidedown-town Kit including one aloof chanteuse, two saxophonists (with shades and poseable hips), drummer (Las Vegas short back and sides optional), guitarist (Steve Cropper complex essential), keyboardist (knowing smile winning), two female backing vocalists. The Marionettes, (backless dresses are back!), and The Marines, three male backing vocal hams (dancing synchronised and bowties unflappable).

Total word count of piece: 203
