Review/Comments/Thoughts:
When I first heard the title track to this album It was an instant like for me. I'd hear it on the radio back in the late 90s but I could never catch who sang it or who it was. Imagine my frustration as I wanted to buy the album. Well one day I was making my rounds in a now defunct music store called "Record Express" I would often go here and go through the used CDs and see if there were any promo stuff like free singles or band stickers. I scored a Foo Fighters band sticker back in the mid 90s when they were first coming out. Anyways... I was doing my routine browsing when the song came on and I still Couldn't get who sang this. So I went up to the desk and inquired on who did that song that just played. They looked at their promo cd and told me Nina Gordon, I found a copy of the CD in the store and was elated as I had not found anything I wanted to acquire. So I took the CD home and gave it a few spins and I remember telling myself I need to keep an eye out on her as for the CD as a whole I really liked it. Though to be honest it's been awhile since I have played it as I write this. It gives me an excuse to dig it out and give it some much needed spins. Though this much I can tell you my favorites on that entire album were Today & For The Rest Of My Life, Now I Can Die, Number One Camera
