James Hunter is right on time with ‘Minute by Minute’

James Hunter burst onto the scene a few years back with his late-’50s/early-’60s small-combo rhythm-and-blues sound, helped by the soul revival that Amy Winehouse and others were then precipitating. He was another overnight sensation who had actually been a working musician in his native England for 20 years before finally enjoying some wider success.
