Blue Satin Alley

Abigail Hopkins

Released: 1st June 2006 | 12 track avant garde jazz album
Abigail Hopkins' follow-up album, BLUE SATIN ALLEY, continued to attract praise from the critics and a second invitation to be interviewed on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour. The single, I'll Be Waiting For You By the Bus Stand shot immediately to number 1 as the most frequently added song in its first debut week, in the Adult Contemporary charts of the industry respected FMQB charts in the USA and peaked at Number 32 in the same AC charts. Abigail went onto to tour Los Angeles. Abigail Hopkins returns with a second album of moody, bluesy jazz. Its a smoky and atmospheric listen, made richer by her lovely voice THE DAILY EXPRESS Abigail Hopkins delivers up a mix of edgy alt-jazz - sometimes unearthly, sometimes sassy- with a confidence worthy of her classically trained voice. Think Clannad go gutsy, or a happier Tori Amos edged with a witchy dissonance and clear, sure harmonies SUBBA CULTURE 'Blue Satin Alley' is an atmospheric masterpiece of mist rising from the sea and rain tapping down in autumn BENT MAGAZINE On 'Blue Satin Alley', Abigail Hopkins has poured her passion, power and imagination and it bears repeating intelligence and pushes the boundaries to breaking point. If you though Bjork lived in the left-field of music, as the man said: 'You ain't heard nothing yet' BERWICK NEWS Blue Satin Alley is a smooth, intricate collection of acoustic folk/pop compositions... Beautiful stuff... (Rating: 5+) BABYSUE ...a massive head-on collision between Kate Bush, Tom Waits and Tim Buckley with the tangled, mis-shaped parts having been carefully and sympathetically re-assembled by the creative genius of Syd Barrett TOXIC PETE 'Blue Satin Alley' is an album of depth and heft. Not an album for a sunny day at the beach, but it might just be the right one for those dark midnights when you need to ponder weak and weary BUDDY HOLLYWOOD
