Whenever it is I won't be buying it! I heard her the other day and thought she sounded like a substandard Lulu (and I don't even like Lulu) I was very disappointed having seen and heard all the hype.

This girl is going to be a massive star.

Rockferry is such a great haunting song-love the video that goes with this song.

Good to see the single Mercy going in straight at No 1 for this talented artist.

Looking forward to the debut album release.

'Mercy' is ok, though to my mind it's starting to suffer from over-playing. I preferred 'Rockferry', now how did that one go again?

Filmed at Porthmadog, song about moving to Rock Ferry Confused

Sounds like a cat wailing at a funeral. Surely Rock Ferry isn't that bad?

Belated thanks for that RockitRon. Just watched the clip. Still prefer that to the current hit, but that could probably be caused by the current over-playing of 'Mercy'. Still congrats indeed on being No1 nonetheless.

She's been referred as the next Dusty Springfield. No one could replace Dusty.

I wouldn't dismiss her from being a big star, but for how long?

I must be a lucky boy.

Arrived home from work tonight and waiting for me on the kitchen table is a copy of the Duffy new CD bought for me by my lovely wife.

Fantastic stuff-have given it a run through-not a bad track on the album.

Would highly recommend it to anyone who likes good Northern Soul tunes.

No doubt this album will debut in the high numbers soon.

Don't knock the lady. She's currently earning me lots of money on BBC's Celebdaq

I was going to say I like her new single as played by Ken but it turns out to have been someone else entirely! Oh dear...

Still playing this album a lot in the car.

Am sure this girl is destined for massive success.

I see Rockferry is being given a makeover-a delux version is coming out.

Anyone heard the track "Raining on your Parade"-this has no 1 written all over it.

I have her album and I just love it.. all the tracks - not a bad one on it.
Luckily, I recorded her "Live in Session" a few weeks back too.
I think she's great!

Great video too! Very sexy!

I just wish she'd made a whole new album instead of a rip-off repackaging.
