HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Absolutely gorgeous flourishes of lush orchestral sad songs with beautiful mature female vocals gracing the top. Outrageously nice. Having sung a groovy duet with French crooner Katerine ("Parlez-Vous Anglais Mr Katerine?"), as well as backing vocals for several popular bands (including Simply Red), A Girl Called Eddy (who splits her time equally between Greenwich Village and Paris) figured it was time to strike out on her melancholy and moving own. Inspired by Tracy Thorn, Richard Harris, Michael Caine, Peter O'Toole, earl gray tea, 24 Faubourg Parfum by Hermes, rainy days, Gene Wilder in WIllie Wonka, a nice glass of red, starry nights, airports (but not flying), Prefab Sprout, all the B's: Leslie Bricusse, Burt Bacharach, the 'Blue Note', The Blue Nile, Bjork, Beck, Brian Wilson, Lionel Bart, Bowie, Beatles, My Bloody Valentine..., "The Little Prince" (movie and book), glockenspiels!, the warmth of the sun, ma, 3/4 time, L'oreal Quick-Stick Instant Foundation, Revlon lipstick in "Cherry Crush", Jimmy Webb, Breath Right Nasal Strips (THE most genius), CASSIS, the town, men who make you laugh, "Harold and Maude", trenchcoats, Chauncy the dog, Chrissy Hynde, Dusty Springfield, Karen Carpenter, the smell of fresh-cut grass, and the sea, Paris, Scott Walker, Serge and Gilbert O'Sullivan, Tony Richardson movies...
