"That woman makes my heart sing" - BB King: "a voice like a 3am whisky/enough electricity to power the national grid" - Front Page of The Times

A great live album by Connie Lush & Blues Shouter recorded on 2nd July 1998 at The Royal Albert Hall, London, England with additional recordings from the Voodoo Lounge, Liverpool, England. Connie, from Liverpool, England began singing in church choirs from the age of five until she was seventeen. Although she is best known as a blues singer, she is equally at home singing jazz, soul, and R&B. Her musical influences are many and include Stacey Kent, Peggy Lee, Aretha Franklin, Etta james, Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker and Maria Callas. She has said that her greatest influence is Bonnie Raitt. In her earlier singing days she regularly sang songs by Bonnie and also Little Feat. Two of of the songs on this live album were composed by Connie Lush, one by Connie and her husband/bassist, Terry Harris, and one by the band's great guitarist, John Lewis. The remaining seven tracks are covers of classic songs by legendary artists including Ann Peebles, Billie Holiday, Willie Dixon, and Tony Joe White. She recorded five White Label discs and one album of garage and soul music in the 1990s. She has also provided vocals for the theme music of several TV programmes and for British Handmade Films. Buy her "Live at the Cavern Club" album. Promote this great vocalist and her band and keep the blues alive.

Connie Lush is widely recognised as one of the finest blues singers that the United Kingdom has ever produced. That indisputable fact was acknowledged when she was voted Best UK Female Vocalist by readers of Blues In Britain for 5 separate years, earning a richly deserved place in the Gallery of the Greats. She is also increasingly recognised on the continent, particularly in France, where she was honoured in the French Blues Trophies awards as European Singer of the Year for 2002. There are no separate awards for male & female singers in the European category, so Connie defeated all challengers. It is less appreciated that Connie’s musical talents go beyond singing. She is a highly accomplished songwriter, confirmed by many excellent self-penned songs that form the content of her live & recorded repertoire. She has also written TV themes and featured as a DJ on Jazz FM. Connie’s Awards include: Five times Best Female Blues Vocalist by readers of UK Blue Print Magazine (now in the Gallery of Greats). Twice voted Best Vocal Blues Artist by the French Blues Society : “Trophees France Blues Chanteur de L‘annee “. Liverpool Women in Business, “Woman of the Year Performing Arts 2010”.

Hi,Danneau.There is no virus in the rar file. Are you using Sophos antivirus software? Scan the file with other antivirus/trojan software and you will see no problems. Thanks, & ttu soon

I'll try something other than Sophos. Thanks for the quick reply.

Hi,Danneau. It's only my opinion, but based on years of using I.T software,I've found the best all round Antivirus software to be Avast. I use the free version @

I use it with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, and it has solved most of my adware, spyware, trojan, and virus problems. Hey! What's this to do with music?! (LOL)! Cheers, and TTU soon
