Albumrecensie

The husky voiced Elkie Brooks should have been bigger than she was. Whilst it was true that she had a few hit singles behind her, notably the Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller composition "Pearl's a Singer," "Sunshine After the Rain," a cover of Chris Rea's "Fool If You Think It's Over," and two torch song ballads "Lilac Wine" and "Don't Cry Out Loud," the album market had been slow to discover her talents.
