For such a significant cult artist, Power 's s recordings have been fairly poorly documented and distributed, with the best known of them actually being mid-'60s demos that didn't come out until the early-'70s release Innovations. This two-CD, Duffy Power - Leapers And Sleepers set does a magnificent job of filling in the major gap in the Power catalog by collecting both sides of all six of his rare Parlophone singles in one place, as well as adding no less than a dozen previously unreleased outtakes.
That's not all: There are also both sides of his rare U. What's more important than the quite impressive lengths this compilation went to for assembling rare material, though, is the high quality of the music. There were few other singers exploring the eclectic tributary Power navigated in the s, combining shades of blues, folk, jazz, rock, and pop in varying mixtures that never sounded forced, with vocals that could shift from croon to raunch.
