Alda

There was a genius thread on the old board about how Alda had got into catering or something so I thought I'd bring her up.

Anyway, on one of those annoying DFS sing-song adverts, there is a song that has a woman singing and she sounds like Alda...Is it her?

SHE WAS A BRILLIANT POPSTAR. What hits did she have? The first one was number 7 then the second one number 20 or something like that was it not? She had dreads before Faye Tozer also.

I have her 2 singles Real Good Time and the underrated Girls Night Out. There is a really good Sleaze Sisters mix on one of them.

I really thought she was ace at the time. I'm sure i've got one of her singles on tape somewhere. It is true that her English was worse than Shakira's though.
 
lol yes we should, and include that recent photo of her.

I remember viewing her website. It was all white.
 
I write a regular column on pop stars of yesteryear on The Vervoid website, and recently decided to cover Alda. Imagine my surprise when I discovered she had a catering firm with her Mum in Barnet, very close to Hertfordshire where I live!

Anyway, I tracked her down and exchanged a few e-mails with her. She even sent me some of her new songs, including an amazing one called "Tell Me Now" and another even better one called "Please Forgive Me". My article, featuring contributions from her, is now finished and accessible here:

At the bottom is a link to her MySpace page, which has some new tracks and photographs posted.

Enjoy!

Si.
