Kiki Dee was a small figure on the British blue-eyed soul scene during the late 1960s and early 1970s, and even though she was one of the few white acts signed to Motown in Europe, she remained virtually unknown until Elton John decided to sign her to his Rocket Records label in 1974. The result was the electrifying single, "I've Got The Music In Me," which shot straight up the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Eighteen months later, John would sing a duet with Kiki Dee he wrote called "Don't Go Breaking My Heart." That one shot straight up to #1 position globally, and remains one of John's biggest hits today.
Dee still had a hard time breaking out as a star on her own. She always made good records, but the fact that she used a myriad of different writers, producers, and session musicians over a series of five albums before a distinct identity had been forged with public would hurt her in the end.
