Tanita Tikaram was only 19 when she released her debut album Ancient Heart. She recorded a wistful and melancholy work which shows a woman with a lot of life experience. Her perfect signature song “Twist in My Sobriety” is an unbelievable deep and stark track. Years after it’s release it doesn’t sound one bit dated and it shows her fully skilled talent as a singer-songwriter. Another track that made it to the charts is “Good Tradition”. Other highlights include the more upbeat “Cathedral Song,” and the jazzy “For All the Years”. It’s the definite highlight of Tanita Tikaram‘s career.
Ancient Heart is available as a limited 30th anniversary edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on clear vinyl.
