Record Review with Kevin Bryan

Judith Owen - rediscCOVERed (Twanky Records). Judith Owen has always seemed content to march to the beat of a markedly different drummer from many of her contemporaries in the singer-songwriter field, and the Welsh chanteuse’s latest offering on her own Twanky label is populated by the most eccentric collection of cover versions that you could ever wish to hear.
