First Time Officially Released On LP In North America!
Remastered From Original Tapes! Includes The Hit Single "This House"!
Hoodoo is the third studio album by British singer-songwriter Alison Moyet.
It was released in 1991, reached No. 11 in the UK and features the singles "It
Won't Be Long", "Wishing You Were Here", "Hoodoo" and "This House".
Largely produced by Pete Glenister, the album includes contributions from Kirsty
MacColl, Steve Lillywhite, Marius De Vries, and ex-Fine Young Cannibals Andy Cox
and David Steele. The song "It Won't Be Long" received a Grammy nomination for
Best Rock Vocal performance.
"Not that it would be a good career move, but Alison Moyet could probably
sing an album of Bulgarian war chants and they would come out sexy and soulful."
"On her third post-Yaz release, songstress Alison Moyet puts her bluesy vocal
abilities to good use on possibly her most soulful collection yet. She hasn't
lost her knack for breezy, adult pop, evident on the lilting, melodic 'Wishing
You Were Here' (with Kirsty MacColl lending some assistance on backing vocals)
and 'It Won't Be Long,' but tracks like the horn-driven 'Footsteps' and
high-energy title song form the core of Hoodoo. With the lyrics squarely focused
on relationships, Moyet is often brassy and assertive as on 'Back Where I
Belong,' which features a catchy electro-reggae beat and contributions from
ex-Fine Young Cannibals Andy Cox and David Steele. She's still more than capable
of expressing heart-aching vulnerability, though, especially on the gorgeous
'This House,' where a split-second pause gives way to her passionately
imploring, 'Who will take your place?' Other highlights include a pair of
gospel-flavored numbers, the jumpy 'Rise' (on which she adds harmonica) and the
anthemic closer, 'Find Me.' It all makes Hoodoo another strong offering from the
distinctive Moyet." - Tom Demalon, allmusic.com
