Toni Childs is an American songwriter/singer who moved to Australia in 2012

This album was her debut, pop rock with a strong African percussion influence


This limited edition album was promoted as her special tour edition. In fact all the record company has done is create a new outer cardboard cover into which the original album cover fits - that's it. It reminds me of that skit from Monty Python where Eric Idle says "'The Cherry Orchard' by Anton Chekov adapted for radio by putting it onto a piece of wood and banging a few nails through it ..." To make this a "special souvenir tour edition", all A & M did was fit another cover over the original cover.

This is definitely the NZ release of the album, Toni Childs performed (on tour) at The Supertop in Auckland on April 8th 1989

Vinyl is in excellent condition, inspected under a white halogen light source and I can see no scratches/marks on either side. I then played the entire album, surface noise is not an issue at all and neither are clicks/pops - this is one great album and a very good playback.

New outer protective sleeve
