Referencing Sheila E. - Sheila E - clean, precise Alsdorf (Germany) pressing for the UK and European markets. Really nice, clear sound and no audible distortion, even on the final track on each side.

Musically, the album is a semi-lost classic (Sheila E fans know it well, but there were no big singles in the UK) from the time when Sheila was musical director for Prince's Sign O' The Times tour, so no slacker in terms of musical nous. She also brought in some fantastic, "Sign" era Prince collaborators for her band and the lady herself is clearly on fire.

Side 1 is one of the "great Side Ones" in my humble view, with the sequence from "Wednesday like a River -> Hold Me -> Faded Photographs being so good that you just want to go back and drop the needle in the groove over and over again.

The strength of the songs drops slightly on Side 2, with "Pride and the Passion" being the sound of an artist treading water (although it was originally going to be the title track) and "Blue Train" outstaying its welcome slightly. Having said that, even songs like "Boys Club", which are basically single-chord funk jams, are lit up by insidious little synth and guitar hooks to give an album that is a texturally rich and rewarding listen.
