"MUSICAL SHAPES" AND "BLUE NUN" (DEMON RECORDS) Now this is how to do a reissue, two albums and bonus tracks on one disc at a budget price. The import-only "Blue Nun" presented Carter as a tough Stax-type R&B singer ("I Need A Hit" and "Tougher Stuff"). Two of the songs are duets with Paul Carrack ("Oh How Happy" and "Do Me Lover"). Since the LP was released in Europe with different tracks than the U.K. version, the CD includes all those tracks as a bonus.
GEORGE W. KRIEGER, GOLDMINE (May 15, 1992)
