Love Songs ~ Tanya Tucker
Love Songs ~ Tanya Tucker
This 1996 compilation is an interesting gathering of Tanya Tucker's romantic songs, all from her lengthy (just over ten years) period on the Capital record label. Although they can all be found elsewhere, some are harder to find than others.

The opening track, 'Two Sparrows in A Hurricane' was a number two hit in the US country music charts, and one of Tanya's favourite songs, it can be found on her 1993 'What Do I Do with Me' album, and many other compilations. 'Strong Enough to Bend' was a number one smash in 1988, and 'Hangin In'', a top 5 in 1994, is another common one. Less so is 'Right About Now' one of Tanya's best ballads from her biggest selling album to date: 'What Do I… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant!, 17 Sep 2014
I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this DVD, as I could only find very little information about it online, but as I didn't already have a Tanya DVD in my collection, I just went for it. I am so pleased that I bought it, it's better than I ever imagined.

The main concert was recorded live at the Reanissance Centre, Dixon in December 2006. There, Tanya performed some real old chestnuts, I was particularly happy that she performed the lovely forgotten weepy 'Spring', as well as 'Soon', another of my favourites. Tanya served up a generous helping of her greatest hits from all eras of her extensive recording career, including 'Here's Some Love' and 'Don't Believe My Heart Can… Read more

Hanging Around ~ Me Me Me
4.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Britpop, 15 Sep 2014
A quirky one-off single that peaked at no.19 in the UK top 20 in August 1996. 'Hanging Around' is a happy, catchy little tune from the band Me, Me, Me, never heard off them huh? Their line-up consisted of Blur's guitarist Alex James, who did the bass and provided vocals, as well as Duran's Duran's Stephen Duffy playing on guitar, and Justin Welch of Elastica fame on the drums.

I'm a fan of Alex's, and was glad to find this CD, their only single, on Amazon. As it was a respectable hit, I'm surprised it doesn't pop up on any compilations, it's better than the standard filler. 3 songs on it, including 'Hollywood Wives' which was good enough to become a A side.
