Hazel O’Connor combined twin roles as singer and actor to great effect in the film Breaking Glass, which propelled her into the spotlight back in 1980. Cherry Red represent the rights to Hazel’s first two studio albums. Sons And Lovers from 1980 boasted the single ‘D-Days’, which peaked at 10 in the UK.
The sequel Cover Plus (1981) included two minor hits: ‘(Cover Plus) We’re All Grown Up’ and a superb cover of The Stranglers’ ‘Hanging Around’. Cherry Red also represent some of Hazel’s later albums, including Here She Comes from 2014, with Clare Hirst and Sarah Fisher (which boasts a moody cover of Nina Simone’s ‘Feeling Good’).
