Customer Reviews

Memories of youth

Thank you Cherry Red. I remember importing this record into New Zealand where I grew up; a long way from the energy and excitement of the pop scene in London in the early '80s. I loved Tracie's breezy pop tones and the presence of Paul Weller just made the whole thing seemed so full of potential. I particularly love "Nothing happens here but you", "(I love you) When you sleep", "I can't hold on 'til the summer" and "Far from the hurting kind". This may not appeal to 18 year-olds today in the age of shiny, rave-inspired R&B-lite pop (which is also good...) but it's certainly stirred a lot of great memories for this listener.

Finally a crackle free album!

Amazingly this is the first UK digital/CD release of any material by Tracie Young. Cherry Red have done another excellent job on this reissue. The hits singles still sound great and there are a few other gems on here.

Tracie's unreleased second album is to follow.

She's Back!

Tracie should have been one of the biggest female stars of the eighties - gorgeous soulful voice - this album was a classic when it was first released and now it's finally been re-released with additional extras it has to be a must buy for any self respecting music lover !!! Welcome back Tracie you have been missed


Genre: Christian & Gospel

Years Active: '80s

Tracie Young began her singing career at a mere 17 years of age, when she was discovered by Jam leader Paul Weller through a newspaper ad for his new Respond label. Young sang on the final Jam single, "Beat Surrender," and on Weller's first few Style Council singles as well. Her debut album, Far From the Hurting Kind, was released in 1984 under the name Tracie, and featured production, backing, and songwriting from Weller as well...
