And she was mentioned in the Shamen's No.1 90s hit "Ebeneezer Goode" as rhyming slang for rizlas, don't forget!

No female artist will ever equal her in popularity in the UK, that's for certain.

It would be interesting to know the demographic that is buying these albums. Is it the over 50's getting nostalgic & repurchasing or are the toons finding a new audience?
