  2. Never heard of this lady before, but some google has enlightened me. The album this track came from had a track called Dusty Springfield. I may have to do some digging.

    Lovely track. I suspect Saint Etienne are more than slightly aware of it's charms...

  3. By the way, have you tested Spotify.Com yet? Well worth joining up: free audio streaming, with a huge amount of artists. Just listening to a jazz compilation with Blossom on it called Jazz For Kids. Brilliant!

  5. Yes, I've been noodling with Spotify on and off for a few weeks now; I find it's good for listening to things you've always half suspected you might like, but weren't sure enough about to buy.

    Criminally low on your Alison Statton (goddess) mind.

    Empty and ducky and smelling divine does it for me all the time Miss Ally x

  6. Yeah, that's how I'm using it too, with a bit of listening time to things like film soundtracks that I couldn't be bothered to buy as well, because I knew them so well.
