Some Candy Singing

I went to my local second-hand record shop on Friday for the first time since The Great Reopening. After sanitizing scrupulously I had a good old rummage around in the bargain bins and found some goodies. 

The pick of the bunch was the album that Kilburn's own Candy McKenzie recorded with Lee 'Scratch' Perry in Black Ark Studio in 1977. The story of the album, and of Candy herself, can be found here. Never released in her all too short lifetime, it finally came out ten years ago under the title "Lee 'Scratch' Perry Presents Candy McKenzie".

And now, so do I. 

"Ice Cream" - Candy McKenzie

"When The Big Day" - Candy McKenzie
