The originals here fall along similar sounds, producing a cool, mellow, and lovely record. One exception is the slightly unsettling closing track "Ingrid Superstar," named after the former Andy Warhol superstar who disappeared in 1984 and has not been found. It's a fitting reminder of Britta's connection to Warhol, particularly on Dean & Britta's 2009 release 13 Most Beautiful Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests.
While Luck or Magic isn’t a major transformation for Britta Phillips, it’s never less than an enjoyable listen. It also reaffirms her substantial if low key vocals and displays a vision as essential to the Dean & Britta albums as her higher profile husband.
