First up, this is a 2 CD set - not two albums on one disc (it would have required major editing to do that). A disappointment for some fans may be the lack of any extras, such as "It's The Night", the B-side to "Understanding". The 16 page booklet includes the lyrics and although there are no details of any remastering, 'Phoenix' is the 2000 Big Moon re-issue.

Like many others seeing Judie Tzuke perform "Stay With Me Till Dawn" on Top of the Pops, I was hooked. Although her début album was a ballad blockbuster, the albums which followed maintained the high quality of songs and arrangements but became increasingly more diverse. From the opening bars of "Sports Car" it was clear that her second album would be no gentle stroll through another book of ballads (although there are plenty of those, including "Understanding") and the album became Judie's highest charting (UK No.7). No sign of 'difficult second album syndrome' here.

I Am The Phoenix continued the development of what was, in effect, 'The Judie Tzuke Band' (this certainly isn't a singer with just a backing band). "You Are The Phoenix" appeared as something of a statement of intent and alongside the expected ballads there was an increasingly powerful rock element. There could hardly have been a greater contrast than between the bombastic opener "Black Furs", with its cynicism and sense of betrayal, and "Come Hell Or Waters High" - beautifully sung and surely one of the most heartfelt songs ever recorded.

It's a complete mystery to me how, with each album that followed her début, whilst Judie grew as an artist and she and her song-writing partners became increasingly ambitious - experimental even - album sales fell until they failed to trouble the charts.

Brilliant tracks from Judie Tzuke, with two albums for not much more than the price of one. If you like Judie Tzuke you will love this bargain, and it will bring back memories if you had these on vinyl.
