All Saints, York Racecourse
Graham Clark, Features Writer
Thankfully the weather decided to stay dry for the second consecutive night of the Music Nights at York Racecourse.

All Saints recently reformed after a lengthy break. The first time I saw them after they had got back together was at Bingley Music Live last September and I got the impression that they were not as enthusiastic as they used to be.

The recent support slot on the Take That arena tour seems to have given them a new lease of life. In York they seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves.

"You all look gorgeous" Melanie Blatt congratulates the audience, after the four piece perform 'Black Coffee'.

Along with Shaznay Lewis, Natalie Appleton and Nicole Appleton the four members were dressed in black looking Street wise which defined their image in the late 90's.

It is a well rehearsed show: the support slot in the Take That tour has done wonders for their live act.

You forget how many hits they have had until you hear them altogether. 'Lady Marmalade', 'Bootie Call', 'Under the Bridge' and 'Never Ever' all sounded as good as they did over 20 years ago.

The songs are part of an era in pop music, but it is not all nostalgia, they released a new album last year, 'One Strike'. The first single off the album is one of the best things they have done.

After over an hour on stage it was time to go. For many it had been a superb way to end a great day of racing.
