This album is a precursor to all the neo-soul artists such as Maxwell, Erika Badu and Jill Scott. Self-produced and mostly self-written, Darby styled himself as a British "Prince";unfortunately he was unable to sustain "the promise." Great album for discovering what all the hype was about.

This is one of the greatest debut albums of all time. I remember hearing Wishing Well for the first time back in late 87 and was very impressed. Right away I was reminded of the classic soul singers like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and James Brown. At that time the classic soul singing was pretty much nonexistant on American radio. We had become used to the cleaned up smooth sounds of Luther Vandross (among others) or synthesizer driven dance songs. I like my soul with a little dirt in it and that's what TTD brought back.

This album is sooooo good! Before Terence went seriously off the rails, having lost the plot big-time, he was an excellent funk/reggae/rock-meets-pop cool tune merchant, and this CD was his finest moment. Remember, this album dates from 1987 when we were up to our eyeballs in Stock/Aitken/Waterman trash, and it kept a lot of us from an unwelcome visit to the funny farm. The CD is loaded with hit singles, but the bestest track is "Wishing well" which is unbelievably good. If you want to buy any other TT-D disks, I suggest that you listen to them first, however this CD can be bought without any prior investigation!
