'Swept' is a fine introduction to Julia Fordham, and a beautiful album in its own right. This second issue CD features the excellent 'Love Moves in Mysterious Ways', which received a lot of airplay at the time of release. The rest of the album is consistently good, with sumptuous arrangements and virtuoso playing from the cream of British session men including wonderful keyboards from Grant Mitchell and stunning bass playing by Pino Palladino.
Lovely late-night music with depth which will reward listening again and again.
if songs of lost love, broken hearts and the sunshine after the rain are what you like you will adore this! i promise on my life!!!
the album opens with the first single "i thought it was you" - despite being one of julia's most beautiful songs, a lovely video and lots of promotion - the single only managed no.63 in the charts! a huge injustice to a beautiful song that remains one of my favourite songs by julia!
other standout tracks are the hauntingly beautiful "swept" and "as she whispers" and the tortured "scare me"..there really isn't a bad song on the orginal cd but the beauty lies on cd2!!!
as well as the single remix versions of "i thought it was you" the cd contains all the songs issued as extra tracks only available on cassette single / cd single....and some are amazing and julia could easily have made another album out of them as they stand up in their own right and there are some real gems! ican only think when it came down to cut the album tracks they did not make it as they do have the same "feel" as the ones that made it....they certainly aren't inferior in quality.
julia's version of "lovin' you" by minnie ripperton (one of the hardest songs to sing due its vocal range) is simply stunning!
"winds of fortune" is an amazing song that has long been a favourite and if "melt" doesn't melt your heart.....my all time favourite julia song "antartica" is on cd for the first time (it was only available as a bonus track on cassette single.
to all julia fans this is a must!!!! if you have never heard miss fordham before but love a female singer / songwriter please give the tracks a listen - her amazing vocals and great songwriting are all on this album and it is worth every penny!Porcelain ~ Deluxe Edition
a few little facts..."talk walk drive" was planned as the first single and went to pressing but then was rejected....would it have more chart successful...i dont think so....julia was offered "everything i do (i do it for you" but chose "love moves (in mysterious ways)...i dont know if this is true but if it is how different could things have been...
