At 18, after watching the movie Ghost World, I decided to start a record collection. I now own hundreds of records and own over 900 cds.

Kiki Dee is most known as the duet partner for "Don't go Breaking my Heart" with Elton John. However she had a long distinguished career. She began recording in the 60's. This cd shows her Motown years. Unfortunately she sings a number of Motown numbers here. They're all right but won't make you forget the originals. The songs "Love is a warm kind of sorrow" and "Love makes the world go round" and "The Day Will Come Between Sunday & Monday" show what promise she had. They are wonderful songs, beautifully sung. Like Billie Davis who I recently reviewed she was one of many talented British girl singers in the 60's. The problem is that there were so many but it's fun to discover them all. I know need to look into her 70's period.
