Hi John. Thanks. It's amazing how many great artists live in the shadow of other musicians for most of their careers. I'd like to hear more solo stuff from Beverley, abd singers like her.

Beverley is truly a dear, with a genuine soul and a very strong style. Just listen to her singing "I put a spell on you" in the Rhythm Kings' DVD. Or her duet with "Sir" Georgie Fame, in the same.
It's a shame, I went to look into All Music Guide, and Beverley isn't even biographed there !!

Thanks a lot for this posting, A.O.O.F.C. !!! And of course, for all the other postings as well !!
