Kirsty MacColl - Desperate Character [LP Cover & Info].doc
1981 saw Kirsty's first album released on Polydor. In style it was poppy with early evidence of the Kirsty "wall of sound". Chip Shop is the strongest track but teenage angst prevails throughout. Getting out of "this place" and boy songs set the lyrical tone of the album. The Kirsty penned Teenager in love, See that girl and Clock goes round are all decent enough pop songs which give a clue that there was a real talent emerging here. This is the best collection of the early MacColl in action.

Ripped from good quality vinyl for your listening pleasure. The vinyl was centralized which means there was absolutely no side to side movement of the tone arm. This is usually the major flaw with vinyl as it causes a "WOWING" effect noticable to most audiophiles. It is caused by the hole not being entirely central and is more annoying than the occasional click in my opinion. Also in use on the Dual 505 Record Deck was a Platter Pad [a solid rubber, turntable mat, about 1 and a half cm thick] which no user of vinyl should be without. It enhances the sound no end!
