Delta Dawn ~ Tanya Tucker
Delta Dawn ~ Tanya Tucker
This is a superb CD reissue of Tanya Tucker's first LP, named after her debut hit, the haunting gothic soap opera 'Delta Dawn', and recorded when she was just thirteen. Young Tanya quickly followed the success with two more hits, 'The Jamestown Ferry' and 'Love's the Answer', both included here. The sound quality of these gems is the best I've ever heard on this CD.

Considering she was barely into her teens, 'Delta Dawn' is a remarkable debut album from a truly great singer, who had the range and power of a girl almost twice her age. There are lots of other notable songs including 'New York City Song' and 'Smell the Flowers', which are almost impossible to find elsewhere… Read more

This was an impulse buy, after a very stressful week I needed something to cheer me up (or least calm me down), and this triple CD set lives up to it's title.

'Now That's What I Call Chilled' is excellent value, with 61, mostly relatively new tracks, and some old favourites. There are lots of songs here that I've always liked, but never actually owned, so this was a good opportunity to psychically have them. Although there are a few songs I will be skipping (but that goes without saying considering how large this set is), it's mostly good, genuinely relaxing music to chill out to, and sometimes encourage. Perfect!
All Change ~ Cast
All Change ~ Cast
Liverpool Britpop band Cast are now too often overlooked by more high profile artists that were around at the same time such as the likes of Oasis, Blur and The Verve (all of which I love by the way), but their 1995 debut 'All Change' was a solid little album, filled with catchy, upbeat, feel good songs, that deserves to be recognised. Along with the weaker, but nevertheless worthwhile Mother Nature Calls album, it has always been a favourite of mine.

All four singles that were released were big hits in the UK, 'Finetime' and 'Alright' both climbed their way into the top 20, and 'Sandstorm' and 'Walkaway' peaked at no.8… Read more
