Details: Used 12” record of UK comedian Tracey Ullman (The Tracey Ullman Show, The Simpsons, Miss America, etc.) featuring songs in the key of pop and country. Really sweet album by one of our favorite ladies out there. Tracey rules! This album also features a very Tracey cover of Kirsty MacColl’s brilliant track, “They Don’t Know,” which is both heartbreaking (as Kirsty is no longer here) and awesome at the same time. Kirsty’s track and title of the album also featured, and Kirsty worked/produced this album with Tracey. Such a fun album! Some ring wear on cover. So ‘80s! If you love Tracey and Kirsty, too, and you don’t have this already: this, darling, is your touchstone. Trust.
