JAKI GRAHAM IN THE 80S
The English singer's most successful studio album was Breaking Away which reached #25 in the album charts. The album features a mix of ballads and S/A/W style 80s production by Derek Bramble. Lots of synths and drum machines are used to good effect to create some pretty catchy pop songs, although this isn't an album that will set the world alight with originality.
The only other album to chart for Jaki was Heaven Knows which was released the year before in 1985 and reached #48. All of the her Top 40 hits were in 1985-1986, making the mid-eighties a very memorable period for Jaki Graham and her fans, at least.
Round and Around was Jaki Graham's fourth single release overall, but the first to chart inside the top 30 in the UK, peaking at #9. The song featured on the singer's debut album Heaven Knows. The B-side featured the track Victim of Emotion, with the 12 inch vinyl including an extended version of the A-side.
