Fine time - Yazz

Yazz was born as Yasmina Evans on 19 May 1960 in Shepherd's Bush, London. Her first commercial success came in early 1988, when she supplied the vocals on Coldcut's 'Doctorin' the house'. This led to a solo career on Big Life records, a label set up by her future husband Jazz Summers. Her debut single 'The only way is up' was one of the big summer hits in 1988. I thought the song was atrocious, and lost all interest in Yazz.

Only a few years later I picked up on the song 'Fine time', a laid back reggae track that reached number 9 in the UK, but did not chart in the Netherlands. I bought the single seven years after its original release.

My collection: 7" single no. 2710
Found: House of Rhythm, London, July 3, 1996
Cost: 80p
Tracks: 'Fine time' / 'Dream'
