Saw her at The Concert Hall in Glasgow.First came across her back in 89. Was in Reckless Records in Islington on my lunch break and her eponymous ‘debut’ was their record of the week. Loved it and bought it on the spot. The follow up ‘Sweet Old World’ escaped me completely in those pre-internet days, and it was 9 years before ‘Car Wheels’ came out to huge acclaim. Seen her play in Shepherds Bush a couple of times about 15-20 years ago. Quality.
The increasingly slurred vocals have put me off her most recent efforts a bit though. Hugely influential
One of the best I have been to.
Essence tour I think.
