Will you? - Hazel O'Connor

One of the ugliest sleeves ever is the one for Hazel O'Connor's 'Will you?' and the accompanying album 'Breaking glass'. It's such an unflattering photograph! And it's a shame, because 'Will you?' has to be one of the most beautiful songs of the year 1981. Hazel O'Connor started her career as an actress in the soft porn film 'Girls come first' (1975), but her big breakthrough followed five years later with 'Breaking glass', a movie in which she acted and also provided the music for. When this single and 'Eighth day' both became top 10 hits in the UK, she went on tour. Her opening act was an unknown local group from Birmingham called Duran Duran. It was the band's first opportunity to play to large audiences throughout the UK and gave them the exposure they needed to secure a recording contract...
