Only just found out the singer (Tanita Tikaram) was only 19 when she sung these hits which were once given a lot of airtime,


A Twist In My Sobriety

Good Tradition
Thanks for posting this @Ryokan
I have been listening to Tanita Tikaram's 1988 album 'Ancient Heart' for the first time in over 30 years!

I bought it on vinyl when it was released and it is now in a box somewhere, but I recently found it on Qobuz.
A really good album which was produced by Rod Argent, who also plays keyboards on the album
There are other great musicians such as David Lindley on violin and Paul Brady on mandolin
My favourite track is 'Cathedral Song':

I must admit I brushed it off at the time as 'just' another pop song, but years later, as with many other songs, have come to appreciate them, and I guess nostalgia must play a part to as songs can transport you back to other times. I was shocked watching 'Good Tradition' knowing she was only 19, another Kate Bush who also has a lot of talent.

I agree @Ryokan ; music can put you right back to a certain place and time.
Listening to Tanita Tikaram transported me back to the first flat which my wife and I owned, back in 1988!
