Kiki Dee

Kiki Dee - Love Makes the World Go Round: The Motown Years 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.
