Alison Moyet: The Giveaway!

As if the reunion of Yaz was not exciting enough this summer, the powers-that-be have also decided to release lead singer Alison Moyet's recent solo disc, The Turn, in the U.S. I first heard it last year during it's U.K. release, and it's unquestionably her best effort in years. And to celebrate, we're giving away copies of The Turn...autographed by the fabulous Ms. Moyet herself!

Alison (or "Alf," as she is nicknamed) has had to struggle mightily in her career, despite having one of the most exceptional voices of the last thirty years. She writes complex material, doesn't ascribe to body image marketing and, as you can see in this video, doesn't hide her frustration with the industry.

Alison Moyet: "The Turn" Sneak Peak and Interview

And if you're still not convinced, take a free listen to two of the standout tracks from The Turn, "One More Time" and my favorite, "A Guy Like You." And to enter, email:

1) Your Name
2) Your Mailing Address
3) The name of your favorite Alison Moyet or Yaz song

Winners will be announced this weekend...and my preview excitement for the Yaz reunion concert this week will be tomorrow. Good luck!
