This is the ex-Affinity lead singer’s only solo album, which was released on Vertigo in 1971.

It is a long lost masterpiece, with mint originals now exchanging hands for over £1,000 due to its rarity on the market.

After Affinity, Linda set about writing songs with keyboard player Karl Jenkins, later of Soft Machine and now a respected composer. The result was ‘Pieces Of Me’, in which all facets of her vocal and composing style are effectively showcased.

Linda’s voice has been compared to Grace Slick and Julie Driscoll, but her roots are more in jazz than rock. The songs range from the fast and frantic rock, to the subtle and beautifully sung ‘Ballad Of Marty Mole’, a long-time favourite amongst aficionados. ‘Pieces Of Me’ deserves to be rediscovered by all those who savour quality music from a seriously good artist.
