Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of US pop starlet Martika's hit 1991 sophomore album Martika's Kitchen - remastered, repackaged and reheated! Child star of US TV show Kids Incorporated, Martika was signed to CBS records at 18 years old and marketed as the 'new Madonna' - immediately scoring an international #1 smash. The second disc compiles all the single remixes and edits issued from the album, including a number of hard-to-find and unreleased selections. Prince fans will be particularly interested in three rare versions of 'Spirit' - all remixed by Danny D. The 'House Mix' and 'Hip-Hop Mix' were previously only available on promo 12" vinyl and the 'Radio Edit' makes it's debut release here. Comprehensive booklet features discography and exclusive commentary and track-by-track review by Martika with ex-Attitude editor Adam Mattera.

I will have to hunt for every release and every collaboration she produced.
the genre is defined POP. I don't feel so. it feels more like FUNK.
but FUNK done so well it should be tranferred to another category - maybe ART FUNK.
her situation is exactly parallel to singer Nina Miranda. both are underrated by the wide public.
The early nineties R funk and B fusion that Prince was cooking up at the time meshes well, with lyrics that feel a lot more akin to the laid back and smile persona of Martika than her S/T. While the first album has Toy Soldiers, her strongest original, the rest of that feels more of a junior Madonna club effort, typical of the late eighties. (Anyone who hung out at the P*lace after school knows that it was Renee Sands who sang the Madonna songs) Here Martika goes experimental, with gospel, soul and jazz overtones. The thing is rich and layered and sounds great. I've heard that Martika married some dude down the road crushing many of my hopes BUT I still have this thing on wax, so as far as I'm concerned, I can still break the dishes in her kitchen whenever I like. Dig it? Take me to forever (in the kitchen).
