This slightly unusual collection largely blends the Kite and Electric Landlady albums, with some B sides. The CD release of Kite contributes tracks 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 15, Electric Landlady contributes 5, 9, 11, 12, 13 and 14. Topping things off are B sides from Free World (8), Days (16) and Cowboy (10). All the material dates roughly between 1989 and 1991.
Sharing cover style with the 3CD box set From Croydon to Cuba, this came out at the same time as a starter for those unwilling to pick up the whole box in one sitting. As might be expected, therefore it focused firmly on Kirsty’s better known material:
Galore/ singles (1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 18), Desperate Character (2), Kite (6, 8, 9, 10), Electric Landlady (13, 14), Titanic Days (15, 16), Tropical Brainstorm (19, 20) plus a Free World B Side (11), a soundtrack offshoot (17) and a new mix of an unreleased track (21).
and freeworld gets a small commission each time. Best of all, it costs you nothing extra!
If you don’t wish to buy from amazon you can still help me out by sending a donation via Paypal, all donations most welcome, no matter how small!
You don’t get any additional site content, you just get to feel good about yourself :o) We would offer a smaller amount but it would just disappear in paypal fees.
