The first in Expansion’s series of classic album reissues on CD comes courtesy of Joanna Gardner’s one and only album for the Philly World label in 1985.

Joanna was born in Philadelphia (1962) and is the daughter of a police force mechanic. She formed her own group at the age of sixteen and first performed professionally at her mother’s night club.

The story of this album revolves around an unlikely, but true series of events involving pioneering UK soul group Loose Ends. At the time Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol were in town working on a project with producer Nick Martinelli, the sessions in fact which were responsible for the trio’s biggest hit ‘Hanging On A String’.

n

While taking a break from their recording, the group went for a wander round a Philadelphia shopping district and called into a jewellery shop where Joanna had taken a part time job as an assistant.

Fascinated by their clothes and English accents, Joanna ended up talking to them at length and revealed that she could also sing and promptly gave a demonstration.

Soon, Nick Martinelli was to hear her voice, and five days after that she was signed to the Philly World label that operated out of the same building as the studio where Loose Ends were recording. – Expansion
