5.0 out of 5 stars Kirsty at her Very Best
Twenty years or so ago I had a copy of this on cassette and it lived in my car. It was the one album I would never tire of listening to. Her voice, the lyrics, the tunes; everything was perfect. Always fitting my mood, whatever it might be, regardless of the time of day. Kirsty made many more fine albums, but this is my favourite, closely followed by Electric Landlady...

1.0 out of 5 stars Criminals Go Free In Mexico
One of the nicest records by a complete innocent in the music industry; Kirsty MacColl was one of the best singers of the eighties.

She was killed by Guillermo González Nova, in his speedboat Percalito, when he worked for Comercial Mexicana.

At the time of the collision, González, his two sons, his daughter-in-law and his baby...

Twenty years or so ago I had a copy of this on cassette and it lived in my car. It was the one album I would never tire of listening to. Her voice, the lyrics, the tunes; everything was perfect. Always fitting my mood, whatever it might be, regardless of the time of day. Kirsty made many more fine albums, but this is my favourite, closely followed by Electric Landlady and Titanic Days. She was the perfect interpreter of other artists' music, and in most cases her version would become the definitive version, most notably here with an amazing version of the Kinks' "Days".

The expanded material is mostly fine stuff, but to some extent, for me, it almosts detracts from the perfect pop album. But that seems churlish when we are able to enjoy more of a fantastic artist who is still sadly missed. If you're at all new to Kirsty MacColl, please start here. You won't be disappointed. Kite is one of those records that everyone should own.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine musician with outstanding talent, terribly missed, 24 Jan 2014

This review is from: Kite (Audio CD)
I think that 'Kite' is perhaps my favourite Kirsty Maccoll album. It bounces across genres and includes the moving and stunning tracks 'Dancing in Limbo' and 'You and me Baby'. This album would be great as the backdrop to a fashion show as each song inspires ideas for dress and movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the one-star reveiew, 11 Feb 2013
This review is from: Kite (Audio CD)
Yes, Kirsty at her very very best. A near perfect album. Great songs, great production, great voise. And ignore the one-star review of this album - the idiot is just refering to the mexican legal systema nd not to Kirsty's album!

1.0 out of 5 stars Criminals Go Free In Mexico, 6 Jan 2013

This review is from: Kite (Audio CD)
One of the nicest records by a complete innocent in the music industry; Kirsty MacColl was one of the best singers of the eighties.

She was killed by Guillermo González Nova, in his speedboat Percalito, when he worked for Comercial Mexicana.

At the time of the collision, González, his two sons, his daughter-in-law and his baby grand-daughter were all on board. Also on board was a boathand, José Cen Yam, who was scapegoated for the crime.

Certainly someone was driving the boat which killed Kirsty MacColl - and if anyone thinks a servant would be allowed to drive the boat then please get in touch.
