Thanks Joe for introducing me/us to yet another fine singer.

Fortunately the world seems to be well endowed with really lovely singers and unfortunately we cannot get to listen to them all.

On a separate thread recently I asked why Niamh Parsons is not overwhelmed with work and up there when gongs are being handed out.

I probably know the answer but as I said there don't get me started on the media!

I recall being with friends at a new year gathering in the sargeants mess at a RAF base in the last century where the entertainer for the night was a young lady with a West Indian background and a voice like an angel.

She could quite literally have sung the telephone directory. However her material was exclusively "covers", wonderfully done but still "covers". Stardom was not going to beckon but she is still more than likely doing OK on the pub / club circuit.

Alison Strauss has at least got most of the way there and good luck to her.

I still for all that prefer the S & G versions.

cheers

Malcolm
