Des'ree - 'Mind Adventures' (1992)
Now you may have to bear with me here ...... I know that Des'ree is mostly known for the bland cobblers she produced in the mid 90s which was used to sell cars, sofas and probably piles cream for all I know. However, long before the gravy train rolled into town she produced an album which still numbers amongst my absolute favourites (ever.)
It is September 1991 and I have just arrived at my university halls in Sheffield. I don't know it yet but my time in Sheffield will be pretty pivotal for me. I will meet my husband, the friends I will take with me through life (whether they want to come or not) & I will work out what I want to do with my life. All this is not bad for 4 years ostensibly spent arsing about in pubs. I have a fairly crappy tape recorder with a propensity for eating all tapes that go anywhere near it & this tendency to shred music means I am running out of stuff to listen to. I give up on the tape player in favour of my less violent Walkman (Hah! Walkman - When's the last time you saw one of those?!) and start borrowing tapes from my neighbours. One of these tapes turns out to be "Mind Adventures" by Des'ree.
