fantastic voice, the best album I've heard in years, and a great live act too.

Take one part Patsy Cline, one part Ella Fitzgerald, add a dollop of Suzy Quatro, back with a really rock'n'roll beat and add a no-nonsense attitude...
I've just returned from the cornbury music festival where Imelda and her band did two sets. Having *never* heard of her previously, i was initially a reluctant listener, but by the end of the first number i was a fan. By the end of the second i was hooked.
while its a studio recorded (i.e. not a live) album, this cd manages to successfully capture much of her live act's spark.
Its very difficult to categorise her sound but if you like a broad range of music that includes blues through to lively rock'n'roll, (or would just like to try something different from bland churned out pop) you should find a great deal to enjoy here.
Give it a try and it won't be long before her voodoo's working on you too.
