There's definitely a song in there for everyone, from the excellent cover versions of Days and Perfect Day to the fast-paced Free World and There's A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis.
If you've never listened to Kirsty MacColl before and are curious to find out what myself and the other reviewers are on about, then get hold of this fab album NOW !!
