Margaret Urlich, Escaping [Single] (1989)
One day I’ll get around to getting the Safety In Numbers album. Until then, this is my vinyl memory of Margaret Urlich. The A Side is the album’s opener (and one of the big singles) the B Side is the album’s closing track; cover of the standard (composed by Billie Holiday). You’re never going to compete with Billie and Margaret doesn’t – but her version has its charm, for sure. Escaping though? That’s a wee banger of a ballad. Still. Saw her perform it 3-4 years ago and she was amazing. And the song was too. Class act. Good pop song from a great pop singer.
