2020 Charity Shop Purchase 24 - Kim Wilde - The Best Of
We are moving about 12 miles due North from Wigtown to our final Galloway charity shop destination Newton Stewart.
The Best of Kim Wilde is one I may have passed on had there been anything more exciting on offer.
Let's face it Kids in America is really all you need and I picked that up as a single a couple of years ago.
Some new to to me facts. I wasn't aware that all her songs were written by father Marty and brother Ricky with Ricky also producing. Nor was I aware that she won the BRIT award for Best Female Solo Artist in 1983 and even more impressively was voted the Smash Hits Most Fanciable Female not once but twice!
It was all downhill from there.
