Our Artist of the Month covers the lead single from The Perri Sister’s 1990 Album Tradewinds “It’s Been You”. This cover was part of the set on Anita’s 1994 project Rhythm Of Love. While Anita’s version is laid back and seizes on the songs melancholy, The Perri Sister’s version has a sense of urgency that makes the declaration a little more compelling. Two great takes, one wonderful song and that’s what this series is all about.
