Rickie Lee Jones: Dominion Theatre, London

Hugh Fielder, Sounds, 22 September 1979

THE LONG cool sleaze of Rickie Lee Jones wafted through the Dominion Theatre with a balmy breeze that fulfilled the expectations of those who'd come to fete this year's Los Angeles discovery. Her laid-back dramatics and hip lethargic swing contrasted with vivid and imaginative lyrics that triggered off mental images like running through a card index of famous movie scenes.
