“I never seem to get stopped in the street by zealous market researchers, asking me my opinions on life, love, the lottery and football's youth policy, but I live in hope that one day someone will ask me to name one LP which defined the early '90s in the same way that 'Searching For The Young Soul Rebels' towered over the start of the '80s. Easy, I'd say; A Man Called Adam's 'The Apple'. A record which should have irrevocably altered the future of pop, but at least the possibilities are still there for another day. I guess it just wasn't made for its time.”
So begins Kevin’s case for The Apple, in this piece penned eleven years ago. Time has barely diminished his argument or the magnificence of the album in question. It remains a tragedy that the record has never been salvaged by a reissue programme, but then perhaps that only helps keep the mystery caged. At least we can shine a torch again on Kevin’s excellent article.
