Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this album in a 99 cent bin in college, because I was a fan of Paul Weller (who was Tracie's professional mentor, and wrote and produced much of this material) and Elvis Costello (who wrote the charming track "I Love You When You Sleep"). I've never thought this album was any kind of masterpiece, but it's a nice reminder that there was more going on in the '80s than all the disco-glitter-synthesizer bang-bang-bang (to paraphrase X). Like many Cherry Red reissues, this one wisely adds some fun bonus tracks, and in this case that makes all the difference, since Weller opted to leave Tracie's two major chart entries OFF the original album. Ah, Mr. Weller, always the fly in the ointment. The bonus cuts really do bump this package up a couple notches. Recommended for die hard fans of the Style Council or any of the acts that proliferated briefly during the "new wave" of UK jazz pop (i.e. early Sade, Weekend, Working Week, Matt Bianco, etc.), or crazed Bananarama fanatics curious to hear a very different version of Weller's Deep Sea Skiving contribution "Dr. Love."
