For You

Album: Welcome to the Cruise (1979)


  • This beautiful multi-track capella was the first single Judie Tzuke released as a solo artist. Co-written with her regular songwiting partner Mike Paxman, it is listed by the Mike Barrett/Adrian Shorter UK discography as issued three times, 1978 (twice) and 1979, each time backed by "Sukarita" on Elton John's Rocket label.
  • The string arrangement is a master stroke, and like many artists, even those who have progressed considerably, she will probably be remembered more for this early hit than for anything she has recorded since. >>
