An accomplished singer of many years, who, with producer Wayne Shanklin, scored a huge worldwide hit with “The Big Hurt”.  The record caused a stir with its unique phasing, or, misaligned sound (due to the out-of-phase phenomenon that occurred when the twin-tracking effect ‘went wrong’).  Such is the history of hit!


Sadly, despite an effort to capture further success with “West Of The Wall” (some say, one of the first protest songs), which was her only other hit, Toni skipped from label to label without any other winners.


Nonetheless, this revised version of our earlier release now adds further tracks that were previously unavailable.

The 76+ minute CD features rare archive photographs from the Shanklin archive, and hugely informative notes from sixties musicologist, Austin Powell.
