Album Review

Three years on from her debut album (but seven years into her career), Alma Cogan's dominance of the British chart was already a distant memory, and "the girl with the laugh in her voice" was suddenly sounding horribly old-fashioned in the face of the new tide of rock & rollers. It was with that in mind that Cogan started looking away from the light-hearted bounce that had fired her past records, seeking instead the more serious material that would allow her to consolidate a more lasting musical career.

The result was one of the first truly classic albums of the new decade, and a set whose success sent Cogan and Newell straight back into the studio, to begin scheming its follow-up.
