Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

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!

Eve Gallagher - Woman Can Have It (1995)

So, I opened an unpacked box of CDs and several of your requested albums were in there, so stay tuned! The first I'll feature is Eve Gallagher. Eve kicked around the UK music scene for some time and forged a close friendship with Boy George in the process. Knowing real talent when he heard and saw it (after all, she was a six-foot amazon with a deep, soulful voice. Instant diva!), he signed her to his More Protein label. Her first single, "Love Come Down", was also written by George and was released in 1990. It was a house stomper and quickly became a dance hit in the UK. Over the next few years she released four more George-penned house tracks: "Love Is A Master Of Disguise" in 1991 (which briefly appeared in the US dance charts); "Heaven Has To Wait" in 1992; "Change Your Mind" in 1994; and the brilliant "You Can Have It All" in 1995. This last track reintroduced her to the UK charts, and "Love Come Down" was re-recorded and released both in the UK and North America to some success. All of the past singles were collected together with new tracks (also written by George) and her album was finally released. But the album didn't make an impact, perhaps because too many years had passed between her first and last singles. In the UK she was old news, and North America had other, similar divas like Kristine W and Amber to admire. The album is both soulful and high energy and should have been much bigger. Ms. Gallagher has appeared on a few songs since, and fronts the cover band Eve Gallagher And Missing Link. She is also said to be working on a new solo album. Keep your fingers crossed!
