Rhapsody Originals (Exclusive, Single)
by Lily Allen
Released: Feb 2007
Label: Parlophone UK
These stripped-down live versions of "Smile," "LDN" and "Littlest Things" let the listener in on the secret that those lucky enough to have seen her live already know: This girl can really sing. No AutoTune here -- her lovely trilling style is bested only by her brassy delivery, with all its cheeky knowingness and in-it-for-a-laugh sagacity. In 2006 she was quoted in the press as not expecting a long music career. With this voice, one can only hope she's wrong.
