Sam Brown – Box (1997)

Jem of Jemtunes, born in 1959, has now turned 59. So ‘The ’59’ celebrates 59 years of cracking tunes with a few albums from each year – 1959 through 2018. Today completes year 39 – 1997.

Sam Brown seems to have gone mostly unnoticed by the masses, it’s a shame really as she consistently produced some catchy songs.

With such a famous father (Joe), getting signed and the release of the first two albums was never going to be an issue, even though both failed to attract much attention. With the 1997 Box though, Sam returned back to the fore with a collection of sometime great and never less than good songs.

‘Whisper’ is a beautiful ballad that makes her first hit (Stop!) seems like amateurish ramblings. There are many other outstanding tracks on the album, ‘What’s The Use’, ‘Intuition’, ‘They’re The Ones’ and the title track ‘Box’ are just a few.
