Lost Soul: Lisa Stansfield

Seriously! Lisa's last single for a major, 8-3-1, which was withdrawn in 2001 has been issued as a one-sided 7" by Sonic Wax. It's not hard to find the withdrawn CD single, and the album it's on, Face Up, is easily available, but this vinyl release presses home the point that outside of the UK's modern soul rooms 8-3-1 has been unfairly overlooked.

This live recording of 8-3-1 at Ronnie Scott's is excellent; the single is even better.
