5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice of an Angel, 15 April 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: From Croydon To Cuba ... An Anthology (Audio CD)
When a friend saw this among my recent acquistitions he vaguely recalled that Kirsty MacColl sang with the Pogues once, he was thinking of the marvellous 'Fairytale of New York' which appears on this album, and that she had died before her time. If that is all you know of Kirsty's work then prepare for a rare treat. This anthology provides a varied cross section of the work of the woman once called Britain's greatest hidden treasure. Kirsty's MacColl's biting wit and gentle humour are greatly in evidence and, for the newcomer, this album is a great place to begin to appreciate her talent. The longer term fans don't feel left out as there are tracks on this album that I have been trying to get hold of for years.
With 65 tracks to chose from and not one piker between all three CDs it is impossible to choose highlights. Taking one track from each 'Angel' would bring tears to a glass eye, 'Free World' shows Kirsty's anger at the consumerist society that was just emerging when it was written, and as a it song has become increasingly relavent since, and many women will identify with lyrics in the song 'Don't Come The Cowboy With Me Sonny Jim'.
Kirsty MacColl's talent was not sufficiently recognised when she was with us and I am glad that now, at last, this wonderfully talented arist is receiving some the appreciation that was denied her in life. For more information about Kirsty, including some tracks to listen to on Realplayer, go to [...] then buy this album. You'll be glad you did
