When PP Arnold arrived in London on September 23, 1966 to support The Rolling Stones as one of Ike and Tina Turner's backing singers, The Ikettes, little did she know that her world was about to be turned upside down. The shy but vivacious 19-year-old caught the eye of Mick Jagger, who would persuade her to stay in London and record as a solo artist – ultimately leading to a five-decade career working with everyone from Jagger, the Small Faces, Rod Stewart, Barry Gibb and Eric Clapton, to Nick Drake, Peter Gabriel, Roger Waters, the KLF, Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene and Primal Scream, to name a few.
Five decades after she became a '60s icon with the timeless pop hits The First Cut Is The Deepest and Angel Of The Morning on Rolling Stones manager Andrew Oldham's ultra-hip Immediate label, soul singer PP Arnold releases a double-album of stunning new material featuring contributions from, among others, Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene's Steve Cradock, The Specials and P.P's songwriter son, Kodzo.
