An Odd Collection Notes

An Odd Collection - (cassette and CD, ROUN 4031)

An intriguing selection, written by Peggy. Songs about love, loss, violence against women, hormones, housework, unions, farting, abortion, ecology, old friends, weddings, nuclear pollution, bodily dimensions and the female vote. Quite unlike any of Peggy's previous solo albums.

Easy listening this is not, but if difficult it is difficult only in a stirring sense." (Ken Hunt, QMagazine, London)
