Sheena Easton

The Lover In Me and What Comes Naturally are two of my favorite Sheena albums, along with A Private Heaven. Of course I wish they would be included in this upcoming campaign for consistency sake, but I ended up grabbing the lame Cherry Red reissue of Lover and the Japanese edition of Naturally in the last year just because I wanted to play them as I pleased (on my CD player).

Do You and A Private Heaven are the only two from her first label I really enjoy, though I've only heard a couple tracks each from Best Kept Secret and No Sound But a Heart. The first three albums are very drab, with some gems tucked away.
As much as I adore The Lover In Me, I would argue that most of the single remixes from the album are commercially available and relatively easy to find. Meanwhile, the best mixes of What Comes Naturally and You Can Swing It (edits) can only be found on promo cds. I really hope MCA will change their stance on physical reissues soon.
Sheena was featured (archive footage) on BBC Scotland's 'The Years That Changed Modern Scotland' (ep2). I think its a couple of years old but was on last night. There are some clips and commentary about Sheena's rise to fame at the start of the 80's juxtaposed and how she was perceived in her home country at the end of the decade, which is towards the end of the show. Always lovely to see Sheena featured on anything, I bet she didn't fancy doing a new interview with Kirsty Wark after that bitchy one from 2000 when she was promoting Fabulous. The documentary is a good watch regardless of your interest in Sheena, lots of Scottish pop is featured throughout.

Kirsty Wark explores the 1980s and early 1990s, a time of painful transition in Scotland as old industries declined and new creative opportunities arose.
