Judy is a veteran of British CCM and now here is a fine album to show that all those years of dues paying have borne fruit. Haunting acoustic-based songs, full of moving and sometimes poetic images caught and held beautifully by fine arrangement. Catch the sonorous cellos on the achingly sad "Wear And Tear", the fluid soprano sax on "Nunc Dimittis" or the ricocheting rhythm on "What Is Truth" Judy's breathy, sweet voice with its occasional delicious lower register growl is a perfect vehicle to carry her literate and often beautiful songs. Another fine album to boost ICC's growing contemporary roster

Hi Klaus just seen your reply - 13 months on is still valid?

Where can I get a CD or download of "Original" - my cassette has long since been damaged but I find the title track one of the most profoundly moving

Hi Chris, I have what you're searching for. I found the CD 10 years ago for cheap money and like it still very much. Give me a mail and we can talk about selling.
Regards Klaus
