William J. Walker "Billyjay"
 
For The Roses

"Why not "Blue"? Because this is at least as good. Oh and everybody else picks "Blue"."
Horses
Horses
"An unbelievablly good album and supremely important. Didn't so much 'push back the barriers' as explode them."
The Kick Inside
The Kick Inside
"Most people plump for "Hounds of Love" and I wouldn't dispute that choice, this is my favourite."
Debut
Debut
"Some people can't see past her occasional eccentricities to the bold and brilliant artist that she is."
Ys
Ys
"The most amazing album release since...who knows. Totally unique but very lovable."
Frank

"This album blew my mind when I first heard it. "Back to Black" is giving her the success her talent warrants but this is even better."
Martha Wainwright
Martha Wainwright
"A fantastic album and, believe it or not, is a good companion to the Amy Winehouse album(no I'm not kidding) rather than clash they compliment and contrast."
Rickie Lee Jones
Rickie Lee Jones
"Her debut and her best. The slightly erratic output  since this album has given her a lower profile than she deserves."
Big Science
Big Science
"Beautiful, strange and very different but if you let it in you'll love it."
Dusty In Memphis

"I heard this for the first time less than a year ago. I shouldn't have waited so long, neither should you!"
I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You
I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You
"So often great artists struggle to produce great albums.No problems here.(incidentally the order of appearance is not a ranking in quality)."
Trailer Park

"Her first and, in my opinion, still her finest collection of songs. A real 'grower' too."
Tapestry
Tapestry
"Just packed full of 'standards' pure and simple."
Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea
Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea
"Album wise she never quite did it before this one .She is a goddess!"
Heart Food
Heart Food
"Never heard of her? Neither had I  'till recently; a REAL lost classic but gaining more attention now."
Time (The Revelator)

"Excellent album. Like entering into a whole other way of thinking."
The House Carpenter's Daughter

"In which our heroine takes a gamble and goes all folky and boy does it come off."
HAZEL EYES,IWILL LEAD YOU
HAZEL EYES,IWILL LEAD YOU
"A relatively recent discovery. It took a few plays before completely blowing me away. Unique artist and superb album."
ON LEAVING

"Perfect in every way."
Chelsea Girl
Chelsea Girl
"The ideal introduction to an amazing talent. Very good songs in a unique style from the queen of cool."
The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill

"Not only did she do  it on her own, she did it better."
Short Sharp Shocked

"Superb album from a now half-forgotten artist. 'Memories of East Texas' is so good it could convert a Black Metal fan to country-folk music.Very varied in styles."
Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
"Tapestry for the '90s? Whatever. Just packed with good tunes, although that line about the spoons..."
The Pirate's Gospel
The Pirate's Gospel
"A new(ish) artist to watch. Folk infused genius. Rough Trade's album of 2007 and mine too."
Whatever
Whatever
"A brilliant and over-looked(at time of release) gem.Don't make the mistake of thinking that its position as last entry is any reflection on its quality."
