Album Review

International model, movie star, and legitimate counterculture pop icon Twiggy tried to capitalize on her runway and "Golden Globe"-winning screen success in the late '60s/early '70s with a series of curious albums, all of which featured the starlet singing three or four flowery pop songs that were buffered by jazzy, occasionally goofy instrumental numbers by an industry combo called the Silver Screen Syncopators.
