    I think 'The Score' is a good record and '...Miseducation...' a great, timeless one.

    The reason she didn't make any more is largely because , as George alludes too, she basically had a breakdown/meltdown after huge group & solo success before the age of 23 while bringing up young children which was exacerbated by major problems with her parents, partner, management and the dubious "spiritual advisor" George referred to.

    My main reason for comment is that tracks by such giants as Althea and Donna & Soul II Soul were afforded being named in a neutral fashion while Lauryn's was reduced to unnamed "cobblers".

    The regularity with which these tracks rotate on 6's computerised system is enough to make one overstate one's position, tbh.

    I have reservations about La Hill, as stated, but there's no debate about UTR or BTL - or indeed most of the others listed - being perfectly fine moments. Just that, y'know, nobody wants to eat pizza every day.

    That Craig Charles funk show turns out to be great when I'm on a long run

    Do they play the full version of Marquee Moon? If so it’s probably ‘comfort break’ related

    They seem to play an awful lot of Nina Simone on 6Music. It's as if she's the only jazz musician anyone on the station has heard of.

    But Maconie didn't know that she'd written "Young Gifted and Black".
