Mina has always been one to push boundaries and this album transcends more musical frontiers. Superbly recorded at Studios La Buisonne in South West France, the album features the incomparable Manolo Badrena on percussion along with her stalwarts; Eric Jacot on bass and Ichiro Onoe on drums with the proceedings further enlivened by the addition of Fredric Dupont on moog and Racos the French rapper. Mina is feeling good and you know that when Mina sings Feeling Good, she really means it. This track possibly comes nearest to defining what Mina is all about, as she stamps her personality on this, her third Candid Collection.
