Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Tricia Leigh Fisher - Tricia Leigh Fisher (1990)

Aha! Finally a deserted pop artist that has some presence on the internet! Tricia Leigh Fisher is best known as the sister of actress Joely Fisher, the half-sister of actress/author Carrie Fisher, and the daughter of actress Connie Stevens and actor/singer Eddie Fisher. With a pedigree like that, it only makes sense that Tricia would pursue a showbiz career of her own. Alas, like her acting career, her singing career didn't get too far. But her one album is pop trash fun at it's best! Bolstered by production from producers extraordinaire Phil Harding, Ian Curnow and Rod Gammons, the album is a synthy, hiNRG dream! It's very SAW, like early Kylie with a kick. Like most of my featured artists so far, Tricia isn't particularly blessed with great vocals, but she makes up for it in spunk. The album stands out as a perfect example of what late '80's/early '90's pop was all about. It's really too bad this album didn't make Tricia a star, as a second album would have been greatly welcomed (by me at least!). Feast on this, pop trash lovers!!

  2. I LOVE your blog! Thanks for posting these obsure pop acts. How tragic is it that I just now found out that THE Tricia Leigh Fisher of Pretty Smart fame had a freaking album? You're providing a public service, keep up the great work!

  3. TRICIA, WHATS WITH THE MADONNA REFERENCE ON THE COVER? MAYBE A LITTLE MORE ORIGINALITY WOULD HAVE GOTTEN YOU FURTHER.

  6. I just bought this after reading your blog.I remember seeing this in longbox-form in cut-out bins back in the 90's.How little I knew,I wish I would've picked it up years ago...
    A highly enjoyable album that's dated in a good way.Tricia Leigh had a nice voice and it's a shame she didn't record further...

  10. Hi I found your blog from researching Japanese 80s pop stars (my obsession), and I just thought I'd share this!

    The Japanese duo Wink covered Tricia's song "Let An Angel" as a B side on their 9th single (subsequently they did a lot of covers from European 80s artists and some disco).

    It's renamed "mizu no seiza", translation "Water Constellation". Check it out! :) Click my name to download it.
