Welcome To My Blog
Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Elizabeth Caroline Orton,commonly known as Beth Orton, (born 14 December 1970), is a BRIT Award–winning English singer-songwriter. Known for her "folktronica" sound, which mixes elements of folk and electronica, she was initially recognised for her collaborations with William Orbit and the Chemical Brothers in the mid 1990s — but these were not Orton's first recordings. She released a solo album, Superpinkymandy, in 1993. Since the album was only released in Japan, it went largely unnoticed by international audiences. Her second solo album, Trailer Park, garnered much critical acclaim in 1996. With the release of the albums Central Reservation (1999) and the 2002 UK top 10 album, Daybreaker, Beth developed a devoted audience. On her 2006 release, Comfort of Strangers, she has moved towards a more folk-based sound and away from the electronic sound of past albums. (Thank God for wikipaedia, "copy" & "paste"...LOL) Here is a selection of Orton albums.... some very good material on these. http://rapidshare.com/files/354753065/Beth_Orton_-_Daybreaker.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/354891559/Beth_Orton_-_Comfort_Of_Strangers.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/356640779/Beth_Orton_-_Pass_In_Time__Disc_1_.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/354753071/Beth_Orton_-_Pass_In_Time__The_Definitive_Collection__Disc_2_.rar
