Previously reissued on Akarma, this version is probably a little bit more "legit", a little bit more desirable (4 bonus tracks, Andy Votel liner notes, mastered from original tapes). "Chris Harwood's debut LP for Miki Dallon's obscure British Birth label was the only record she ever made. No singles were ever released and it was seldom heard beyond these shores -- the making of a record collector's holy grail. Alongside the obscure Vashti Bunyan LP, Shirley Collins and Julie Covington's early solo LP, Nice to Meet Miss Christine remains one of the most sought after English female folk records ever released. You just have to listen to her cover of CSN&Y's 'Wooden Ships' to realize why. Miss Christine's naked vocals ride a rock-solid back beat with clavinet funk and a wash of luscious strings sending you into a trance-like state. Featuring a veritable who's who of rock and folk, including Yes guitarist Peter Banks, Strawbs guitarist Dave Lambert, Joe Cocker/Juicy Lucy/Sensational Alex Harvey Band hammond organist 'Tommy Eyre' Plummer, bass player Roger Sutton (Brain Auger & Julie Driscoll)-- this rare-as-hens-teeth record (fetching in excess of £200 on internet auction sites) is on the want list of any serious collector of any of the above bands."
