Great fun. She did it because she could (and presumably had the funds to carry it off). Kudos to RCA for putting it out.
On another forum (which will go unmentioned) there was a thread about 'what record would you take to a desert island'. Most suggestions were of the Dark Side Of the Moon variety... unimaginative to say the least.... so I proclaimed this album as my desert island listening of choice. Cue astonished outcry from the Pink Floyders. It's true though - I would rather listen to this than any of their terrible dirges. FFJ was a class act.
