Whistle –When The Lights Go Out On Broadway

Whistle –When The Lights Go Out On Broadway/Lincoln Lullabies –York YR 209 (1974 UK)

This is the elusive 2nd single by Whistle on the York label. It’s perhaps not quite as endearing as The Party Must Be Over (see review May 12th 2008) but it’s an altogether more ambitious arrangement featuring orchestral stabs and strings over a full fronted guitar driven attack very much in the mould of a Bob Ezrin production from the period. The track shares a similar drawn out intro to their first single and rocks out, but the chorus doesn’t quite have the same sing-along effect as the chord sequence is quite monotonous throughout.
