Wonderful Voice, Wonderful Compilation,
This review is from: From Croydon To Cuba ... An Anthology (Audio CD)
I first heard Kirsty Maccoll in 1985 singing The Smiths' "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" and was mesmerised by her magnificent voice. Unfortunately, her passing came way to soon but at least we have this boxset to document Ms. Maccoll's talents as a singer and songwriter.
This is quite an eclectic retrospective but almost every song is a gem. One wonders what she would have continued to pursue after Tropical Brainstorm and the last 2 songs on disc three (Manhattan Moon & Sun On The Water- Head is not on this set) give an inkling of what would have been down the road.
I haven't stopped listening to this set since I came back from London weeks ago. It's worth the purchase for the long-time fan as well as those who have yet to hear of her. Trust me, you'll fall in love.
