5.0 out of 5 stars Angelic 21 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
I totally disagree that this is a 'woman's album'...since when did gender come into liking a certain type of music!!!
This album is completely and utterly fabulous because Eddi Reader IS completely and utterly fabulous on every album she has released so far...its THAT voice.
This album reminds me of warm summer afternoons and lonely winter nights all at once...beautiful to say the least.
I recommend anyone buy this album and give it a few listens...you'll be hooked!
P.S. The late,great Kirsty MacColl co-wrote 'Dear John' too...and if you are aware what a 'dear john' is...you'll prepare your wee self before listening...
Hanky anyone?? :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece! 20 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
There's only one word that describes this album - and that's 'beautiful'. Some of these songs have a really strong personal connection for me, but I reckon anyone who appreciates emotional music will pick up on the incredibly soulful tunes and poignant lyrics. This is definitely on my Desert Island Discs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories Are Made Of This ( nevertoolate #016 ) 10 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eddi Reader's eponymously titled 1994 release is a great little album.
I revisited it recently after a chance hearing of single 'The Right Place' and
was reminded of my instant transportation into this wonderful singer's world.

I had not known of her work with Fairground Attraction at that time ( a gap
in my musical education subsequently rectified ) but that one number was
( and remains ) a thing of real beauty. The composition by former band buddy and
guitarist Mr Nevin stands shoulder to shoulder with the best songs of that decade.

Delving further into the album's 12 compositions delivers many magical rewards.

Ms Reader's voice is a captivating instrument. Warm, quirky, expressive and with an
extraordinary dynamic range ( witness the stratospherically high arabesques in the
concluding bars of 'The Exception' ).
Her folk roots shine subtly but proudly at the heart of many of these performances.

MrNevin and Ms MacColl's song 'Dear John' is given a
heartbreakingly timeless and tender interpretation.
The warm and uncluttered arrangement allows Ms Reader
room to breathe and deliver her best.

Mr Penny's production is, throughout, a small masterclass in judicious economy,
his skills placed sensitively at the service of the artist and her project.

In the album credits Ms Reader thanks "all the musicians who gave
their instincts to this record".

They also very tangibly deliver both their love and respect for the performer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 17 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Actually bought this cd some time ago following my first attendance at an Eddie concert and really liked it on first hearing. All of the listenings of the cd since have only increased my affection for it. Top of my pile for a saturday night listening, glass of wine in hand and sitting back well within the chill-out zone. But beware the track 'Ae Fond Kiss'. If you can listen to that track and not sigh for lost love ~ doesn't matter whose ~ then you have no heart. A voice as clear as glass and more emotion within it than it has any right. Combined with the prose of Burns a marriage made in heaven.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Right Album" 26 Aug 2010
By Sandy67
Format:Audio CD
I agree with other reviewer that I think its Eddi's voice that makes this album so good to listen to with such soul, passion and heart.
Also agree that its not just an album for women as I was given a tape of this album many years ago from a male friend and was hooked from the first listening of the album. Shows how long ago I first heard the album when I talk of tapes and of course copied tapes dont survive the passing of time so glad to finally be able to get a CD version of the album as I have been searching for this particular album because of some heart felt songs that I love to listen to.
"Dear John" was the most memorable of the album tracks which is how I searched for the right album to find. All good songs with memorable lyrics and some haunting sounds to go with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic voice and music 23 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having heard Eddi live for the first time last year (some 20 years after hearing her on the radio), I am more than pleased with the beautiful singing and music-making on this quite early solo album. If you ask me, she was well shot of 'Fatal Attraction' as she called her erstwhile band at her gig!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening 15 Dec 2013

I am really pleased with this cd. It is really easy listening and the songs are very catchy. It was ludicrously cheap and is great quality for a second hand cd.
