The lady is perfection, 17 Dec 2004
Beg, steal or borrow all Amanda's recordings - they are few enough. This lady has class, humour, sex appeal, a voice to melt the hardest heart with a range and phrasing that would be hard to surpass. Listen to her sing her own compositions and let her draw you into each magical episode. She is a magician, a weaver of tales, totally mesmerising. She can make you smile, make you laugh, make you cry and most of all, just make you remember that wonderful range of emotions we all experience throughout out lives and loves.
Check out her website and see what she is up to - if she is appearing within 500 miles of you - go and see her. She is a cabaret performer without equal in these days of brash over produced performers. Try taking your eyes off her when she is on stage - it is impossible. And once the songs are in your head they remain in your heart.
This was the first CD of Amanda's I purchased and I was hooked by the second time I had listened to it. Errol Flynn, Ship in a Bottle, Breathe You in - poignant and evocative and beautiful.
Everyone Wants to be Sondheim, Dieter's Prayer - just listen to her sense of fun. Each track on here is a perfect gem. And of course The Rose. So many good versions out there but this is the lady who wrote the song and no one delivers it quite like she does.
If you have not discovered Amanda you have a wonderful voyage ahead of you!
