The Comsat Angels 'Chasing Shadows'

Featuring moral support from fellow Sheffield rock icon Robert Palmer.
Why this band never became huge is a mystery.

Next up - it has been far too long since I listened to some Judie Tzuke.

Image

Saw her loads of times in concert - superb. Still one of the best voices ever.

Judie Tzuke - Shoot The Moon
Been a fan of Judie since she started in the late 70's. Not played her for quite a while, but I took "Sportscar" to one of Savvy's bake offs and I have to say it went down like a fart at a wedding! and to be fair it was off the turntable as quick as a flash. Times and styles change and as much as I like her voice, he delivery and style sounded very dated.............. just sayin!

Like the Comsats, Judie struggled with Record Company Indifference, lack of promotion and no chart success.

She had more luck with writing and arranging for others and her partners-in-crime Paul Muggleton and Mike Paxman became well-known as producers.

Rhino Edwards (bass) and Jeff Rich (drums) left her band to become the rhythm section for Status Quo.

For a more modern sound, listen to 'Dive Deep' by Morcheeba which features Judie on several tracks. Or the Freemasons track 'Uninvited' with her daughter Bailey.

Aaron Lee Tasjan - Karma for Cheap. Fantastic album of well written and played songs a mixture of Harrison, Petty, Orbison Nilsson and a bit of Newman. Bliss. Oh and he plays guitar very well.
