Jenny Darren is one of the very few raunchy “rock chicks” singers from the UK that could have given Joplin a run for her money. A child star, a recording veteran in a short time, and by the late 70’s rock had come calling with a vengeance – Jenny Darren was born with a voice and stage presence to die for.

The female rock anthem “Heartbreaker” was written specifically for her by the song writing partnership Gill/Wade but sadly her then record company dragged its feet on releasing it as a single and Pat Benatar heard the track and then recorded the song which went on to chart in the USA.

The tracks on the “Best Of” were recorded in the 1977 to 1980 period mostly at the famous 10CC Strawberry Studios. Jenny was by then supporting AC/DC on tour as well as performing at all the major festivals (Reading and Knebworth) and supporting Streetwalker and Patti Smith on tour.
