“Ethereal street musician who plays space music wearing a winged helmet”, says the website. It’s pretty bang on. The Space Lady has been playing her strange electronic music for some thirty to forty years, and now has the Greatest Hits she deserves. Weird, spacey and fun. The vinyl has a download code and the CD comes with a bonus CD.

Remarkable collection of songs from a lady who wandered the streets of San Francisco in the late 70s doing oddball covers and spreading peace and love.
The theft of her accordion led her to replace it with a then state-of-the-art Casio keyboard which created an incredibly contemporary retro-futurist sound that recalls Broadcast, Pram, Silver Apples and United States of America. She has a lovely warm voice and coupled with the futurist bleeps of the keyboard she creates a hypnotic sound that works wonderfully on covers of ‘Major Tom’ and ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky’, with just the right amount of space echo on the voice to create that much sought-after 60s retro outta space synth sound.
I guess she is kind of like a female version of Moondog, wearing such ensembles as a ping pong ball with a blinking light inside, but although most of the songs are covers but this doesn’t detract from the quality and the unique performances.

Splendid obscure release from Night School. Sounding much like but better than that slightly strange man who stands outside Primark in city centres with his Bontempi organ knocking out oddball covers of chart hits in his own inimitable style.. class and very recommended!!
