Kirsty MacColl

Desperate Character (CD)

Cat. No.: SALVOCD058
Barcode: 698458815828
Playing Time: 35 mins

Kirsty’s 1981 debut album finally takes its CD bow. Full of charm, humour and her quirky ear for what makes a great pop song, there’s a diversity and eclecticism at work here that brings together the cheeky pop of the hit single .... Chip Shop..., the swing jazz of The Real Ripper, the kinky reggae of the Hollies’ Just One Look, the sumptuous 60s recreations of See That Girl, Until The Night and Hard To Believe, plus more besides. This remastered version comes with a 20-page booklet featuring lyrics and brand new sleeve notes.
