Shirley Collins - legendary folk singer and one of England's most respected song collectors - has announced her return to recording after 38 years. With new album Lodestar, Shirley has created the unlikeliest release of the century so far.

The first track to be shared from Lodestar is 'Cruel Lincoln'.

Pauline Collins repeats her stage success as the character Shirley Valentine, a married woman who decides in her middle years that she wants more out of life. Leaving her spouse behind, she heads to Greece, where she grows close to a low-key local bloke (Tom Conti). Collins and director Lewis Gilbert (Educating Rita) choose to let the character, as she did in the play, speak directly to the audience at times and the gamble works in terms of creating a gentle, intimate atmosphere. Conti is a bonus, a warm presence and funny to boot. –

Josephine Foster album Graphic as a Star is based upon the poems of the 19th century American poet Emily Dickenson. Josephine lays stairsteppy melodies beneath a collection of Dickenson gems and sings them with a burnished soulfullness like the purple sunsets so often described in the poems. Massachusetts mountains pearled spiderwebs and folk heroe William Tell are all present in this unforgetable meeting of Dickensons posey and Fosters music making a natural and inevitable whole. Ms. Foster is a Colorado-born artist whose songwriting draws from far corners of the musical spectrum to form a truly singular body of work. While sometimes compared to such singers as Shirley Collins or Tiny Tim, it is difficult to pigeonhole her arresting vocal style. She says her craft is strongly shaped by "Tin Pan Alley on my maternal side, rock and roll on my paternal side, Western folk music by birth, art-song and classical music via my adolescent passions".

Verve's Ultimate Shirley Horn may not live up to its billing, but the budget-priced collection is nevertheless a terrific introductory sampler. Diana Krall selected the 17 songs on the compilation; she also wrote the liner notes, and she has done an excellent job of summarizing Horn's latter-day recordings for Verve, which is when Horn truly began to hit her stride. Some may argue that a favorite or two are missing, but by and large, these 17 songs capture the essence of Horn, which is enough to make this a worthwhile sampler.
