Susan's first album sold like hotcakes due to the novelty/curiosity factor -- people had seen the audition and wanted to hear what else this woman could do. "The Gift" sold surprisingly well partly due to the fact that it included traditional seasonal holiday music on it. "Someone to Watch Over Me" did reasonably well but definitely the novelty/curiosity factor was wearing off by this time and the track list was undoubtedly a bit puzzling to some who are casual fans. The treatment of some of the songs on the album was undoubtedly disconcerting as well. I suspect some people were more than annoyed when they found a very, very short version of the song "Someone to Watch Over Me" and that "Autumn Leaves" was actually not the classic song but something quite different.

Now that Susan will no longer be working with Steve Mac, who is affiliating himself with BMG, it will be interesting to see what happens in terms of her career and future albums.

She will have to promote and promote, no good sitting in her little town anymore because that won't help sales. You can have the greatest voice in the world but it all comes down to song choices, her last album flopped in so many countries because of the songs.
But she's never going to sell 2million+WW again without good singles.

Hi, Zenneo!

I'm surprised that Adele would allow anyone else the rights to record "Rolling in the Deep." I suspect that most people are always going to associate that song with her.
