Great First Record,
This review is from: One House Left Standing (Audio CD)
The first album by singer / songwriter Claire Hamill. This was recorded and released originally in 1971 when Claire was just 17.
Claire has an absolutely amazing vocal range, the songs are about her experiences of growing up and life in Northern gritty Middlesbrough.
All the songs on the album are very good, and a funny one in "Alice in the streets of Darlington" Music should be fun as well as serious
My favorites on the album are.
Baseball Blues, a song about a boyfriend, who only wants some baseball boots.
The man who cannot see tomorrows sunshine, about a man on unemployment benefit, how it makes you feel. Still as relevant today.
Why Claire never hit the heights of Kate Bush Judie Tzuke and Enya is a mystery, as Claire's voice and music is way better.
Buy, Listen and enjoy the wonderful music
