SINEAD O’CONNOR Released Second Longplayer ‘I DO NOT WANT WHAT I HAVEN’T GOT’ 30 Years Ago Today…

20 March 2020

Today 30 years ago, on 20 March 1990, the wonderful, outspoken, controversial and emotive Irish singer SINEAD O’CONNOR released her second, breakthrough LP ‘I DO
NOT WANT WHAT I HAVEN’T GOT’
. Together with her splendid 1994 album Universal Mother the best work she ever accomplished. A highly emotional record filled with heart and soul-touching beauties. and of course, her affecting biggest hit single ever, her cover of Prince of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ which also turned the longplayer into a mega-seller.

Rolling Stone wrote: “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got is less about O’Connor’s ambitions than the cost of those ambitions, and in almost every regard, it is an even better record than her first. The album seems the work of a transformed woman — someone who has put aside much of the anger and confusion that fueled her earlier songs and has found a hard-earned measure of spiritual happiness.” Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

The Late Great CHRIS CONNELL Thrills With His Heartbreaking Cover Of ‘NOTHING COMPARES 2 U’

It’s almost three years (17 May 2017) since troubled singer/songwriter and towering voice CHRIS CONNELL decided, due to severe depression problems, to leave this world. A really sad loss. He fronted grunge icons Soundgarden, founded Temple Of The Dog and made a lasting impression as a solo artist.

While surfing on the internet yesterday I came across his spine-tingling, acoustic version
of Prince‘s brilliant love ballad ‘NOTHING COMPARES 2 U’, made famous, worldwide, by Sinead O’Connor. His utterly gripping vox and the weeping cello bring you to tears. Get goosebumps right here…

Performed for SiriusXM – a radio  company headquartered in New York City

Dublin born singer/songwriter SINEAD O’CONNOR‘s second, breakthrough album ‘I DO NOT WANT WHAT I HAVEN’T GOT’ hit the top spot of the UK albums chart 29 years ago, on 24 March 1990. Her cover of the Prince written ballad ‘NOTHING COMPARES 2 U’ was released as the second single off the LP and made O’Connor a superstar. I guess anybody with a little bit of interest for music knows the moving, accompanying clip…

SINEAD O’CONNOR – Released Memorable Debut LP ‘THE LION AND THE COBRA’ 30 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history…

23 October 2017

Artist: SINEAD O’CONNOR

Album: THE LION AND THE COBRA

Released: 25 October 1987 – 30 years ago

Rolling Stone wrote: “Sinéad O’Connor’s first album comes on like a banshee wail across the bogs. Blending the uncompromising force of folk music, the sonic adventurousness of the Eighties and lyrics that draw on classical history, ghost tales and the Bible. With The Lion and the Cobra, Sinéad O’Connor joins the ranks of Kate Bush, Laurie Anderson, and Jane Siberry — all women who are shattering the boundaries of pop music.”

Turn Up The Volume! says: Sinead O’Connor was quite unique in sound, vision and looks when she entered the music world with this stunning debut longplayer. The start of a career with up and downs due to a turbulent life and psychical problems, nonetheless a remarkable artist blessed with a towering voice & flamboyant guts to be honest and outspoken. RESPECT!
