In the mid-’60s, organist Richard “Groove” Holmes had a hit with his medium-tempo rendition of “Misty.” The reissue has the original short version (which was cut as a 45) plus other medium-tempo ballads performed in similar fashion. Holmes and his trio (featuring guitarist Gene Edwards and drummer George Randall) play enjoyable if not overly substantial versions of such songs as “The More I See You,” “The Shadow of Your Smile,” “What Now My Love” and “Strangers in the Night,” trying unsuccessfully for another pop hit; the organist’s sound is more appealing than some of the tunes.
