To the Limit has been out of print for a long time and the original CD version from the Nineties is well sought after. Produced in 1978, this album marked the first time Armatrading recorded an album with a live band instead of separate studio sessions. This helped give the album a fuller sound and perhaps even a deeper, funkier feel to the lyrics. All musicians are clearly having a great time playing these tracks and Armatrading’s voice is simply phenomenal. Her lyrics are real and really get accentuated by the effort of the live band. To the Limit simply is an album you cannot miss out on!
