Twiggy is one of the great icons of the 1960s. Her sudden rise to stardom in 1966 made her the face of Swinging London and her look completely defined that era. Apart from her work as a model, she soon started a career as an actress and a singer. She recorded her first two singles for Ember Records in 1966 and 1967, featuring songs by songwriter and producer Tommy Scott.

The four tracks came out as an EP in France, which has inspired this reissue.TRACKLISTSide ABEAUTIFUL DREAMSI NEED YOUR HAND IN MINESide BWHEN... + INFO

Fruko is right out front, his giant electric bass positioned in the center. The emphasis is on allowin... + INFO
