No two performances are ever the same.
Though first brought into the limelight as front woman for Fairground Attraction, whose #1 single, ‘Perfect’ and parent album, First of a Million Kisses, both topped the British charts, it was Eddi’s subsequent solo albums that signalled her ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them very much her own.
