HOoo Sade !

I cruised about on the tube listening to this album ... love sick but so excited to be in London.Hanging out in Soho in the middle of a Jazz revival !!! Robert Elms ....Live Aid ...jeez This album !!! every sound and beat is still amazing now. I got a job in an advertising agency and loved it ....found my girlfriend ..married her we are now back in Cornwall with a 17 year old daughter ( two others 11 and 5) and I am just about to buy This album again because it is absolute magic and totally timeless ..thanks Sade i am now going to cry!!!
