The Julia Fordham Collection
Knowing I may take some hits for it, I must admit that I do like Julia Fordham. She has a wonderful voice and produces some fairly consistently interesting songs. Sure she’s ultra-mellow and sentimental, but she makes it work. The Julia Fordham Collection is a greatest hits record spanning the last decade of her music. Featuring cuts of her five albums the collection is a pretty good cross section of her songs, although there may be too much emphasis on songs from her second record, Porcelain . Three of the songs have been re-mixed or re-recorded for the occasion, and those cuts may be a bit jarring for those already familiar with her songs. Still, The Julia Fordham Collection is a nice record showing the evolution of the artist.
