Ever since we got a taste of deep house vocal legend Ladybird's full length album through the four track sampler released in December of last year, we have been looking forward to the day when it would be available. The wait is finally over, and this wonderful album produced by deep house maestro Andy Compton and backed by The Rurals can be experienced in its full glory. The amazing vocals and lyrics, involvement of real musicians and influences from soul/jazz/funk/afro make this something truly special, with each of the featured songs being masterly crafted and showcasing Ladybird's incomparable soulful voice and Andy Compton's inimitable production and arrangement skills. A masterpiece.
