Viva la Kirsty MacColl

There are two deaths in music in the past ten years that really bother me, even years later. One is Jeff Buckley and the other is Kirsty MacColl. Her music was imbued with her spirit - sassy, adventurous and sweet. Anyway, fans of Kirsty need to clean house! Sell the old versions of your Kirsty CDs now because her remasters are coming out in the UK this week and next. Soon after will be a box set called From Croydon to Cuba: An Anthology

Both the remasters and the box set contain many unreleased songs. The first re-release is for my favorite, Titanic Days. It contains these extras (many of which are not on the box set): Angel (Piano), Fabulous Garden, King Kong, Dear John (recorded later by Eddi Reader), Miss Otis (live), Free World (live), Touch Me, Irish Cousin, Angel (Single, Stuart Crichton, Into The Light, Apollo 440 Remixes). details

Sounds of Kirsty (full songs courtesy of her website):
Titanic Days
In These Shoes?
My Affair
Soho Square
Fairytale Of New York (with The Pogues)

I am guessing this post will please some of my trolls who read this blog. You know who you are. These songs will absolutely put you in a good mood!
