AllMusic Review by

This single features the title track from Katie Melua's debut, Call Off the Search, as well as two other tracks. The first, a Melua-penned composition called "The Shirt of a Ghost," is better, if only because it doesn't take itself as seriously as her version of "Deep Purple" does. The latter -- a standard dating from 1934 -- betrays a little of Melua's age, as well as her tendency to oversing. Still, the single is a tidy little advertisement for the vocalist's promising full-length.
