Cheek –Do You Have A Soul?

Cheek –Do You Have A Soul?/ Take Me For What I’m Worth/ So Much In Love/ Still In Love –Voxx VEP-3002 (1980 US issue)

Powerpop Purveyors is what is says on the back cover and this is exactly what Cheek do… Do You Have A Soul? is an incredibly powerful remake of The Easybeats tune and with Vanda &Young producing it’s a remarkable update adding more than a hint of the AC/DC thud. ROCK!!!! It’s loud and so very good – exactly what Power Pop should be. This EP was put out by Greg Shaw’s Voxx label in the US and collects their two Aussie singles (was there more?). P.F Sloan’s Take Me For What I’m worth is a great song to cover, but it doesn’t quite come off. So Much In Love is the Jagger/Richards/Mighty Avengers track and the lone original Still In Love is OK, but how could anything follow that cracking opening number without being an anti-climax?
