We heard Leslie Mendelson performing live, in support of Glenn Tillbrook of Squeeze, on his recent UK tour. She won the crowd over, and showed her class as a songwriter in the vein of Janis Ian and Carole King. Swan Feathers contains some excellent tracks, and is well worth the gamble for those looking for quality that has yet to hit the big time.

I would also recommend seeing her live, and if possible tracking down her latest work including the little known classic songs 'Coney Island' and 'Chasing the Thrill.' Mendelson is a major talent, who is lacking on the big break to reach a wider audience. Get on the train now, while there's room!

There are many good female singers around but there are a few special ones with a great voice and soulful delivery e.g. Shelby Lynne, Diana Krall and Skye Edwards (Morcheeba). I'd put this album in with the best, beautifully sung, full of expression and excellent recording. If you like any of Shelby Lynne - Just A Little Lovin'; Morcheeba - Blood Like Lemonade; Diana Krall - The Very Best Of; Norah Jones - The Fall + Come Away With Me then get this one, and try the others on the list if you don't have them all.

I really have to ask myself whether there is any real point in me saying anything about this album. After all, Jac Holzman says "unless I've lost my bearing, this is one of the tastiest pop albums of recent memory. And I say 'pop' in the Carole King sense". Now, this is the Jac Holzman who founded Elektra Records and signed The Doors, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Judy Collins amongst a myriad of others. So who are you going to believe? Me or him?

Mind you, Mr Holzman must be about a hundred years old know, and goodness knows how many faculties he has left. However, in this instance I do have to agree with him. Because this is an iridescent record, one of shapes, colours, textures and melodies. Above all else, melodies. Granted, the opening track didn't really grab me, but from 'So Far So Bad', I was completely and utterly hooked. Ms Mendelson has some previous form, having recorded an album with the band Mother Freedom as well as her self-released debut "Take It As You Will". But I'm sure it's all been leading towards this incredibly assured offering.

Not a note is wasted as she moves effortlessly between ballads like 'Rest Of London', upbeat pop songs like 'I See Myself With You' and jazzy turns like 'Hit The Spot'. Ten of the eleven songs are originals, mainly written with Steve McEwan, resulting in a set that has a rare, timeless quality only great albums can achieve.
