Been a fan of Katy B since seeing her at my first Glastonbury in 2011. I loved her current CD, 'On a mission', out at the time and went to see her again at The Manchester Apollo soon after, on the strength of her talented performance and warm connection with her audience, while performing at the festival.
When 'little Red' was released on vinyl earlier this year, I didn't hesitate to place an order through Amazon, hoping for more of her unique dub- mixed style, added to her finely honed vocal abilities. Sadly the actual vinyl release was delayed by some time as Amazon pointed out, but thankfully, I download the included MP3 rip- version and what a surprise!. A couple of years on and what a pleasant difference. A more matured music style and an even more precise vocal delivery, its become one of my most played albums and easily one of my all time top ten best ever...... can the girl get any better?!. Well actually yes, by way of her album finally turning up on vinyl only just last week (3 months or so later, but all credit to Amazon, the Vinyl was finally hand delivered on a 'Sunday' of all days, as notified by text the previous day, now that's service for you!!).
The Album itself is on 'two' E.P. style pressings, unusually playing at 33rpm, but of exceptional production and sound quality, at least to a newbie audiophile like myself. Enhancing the musicology of 'Little red' to the next level from CD and helping to enrich my whole enjoyment of the relatively new found vinyl renaissance that I'm currently experiencing( I'm a young minded 52 year old!). Cant wait for her next offering when eventually its created....
Again, all credit to Amazon for the outstanding service I've always received. Thank you.
