    That was a truly one-off lady. There will never be another like her – rest in peace, Etta – you were the tops. Thank you for being you.

    Oi! I’m supposed to do the music bits round here! :-)

    I sent a few clips of her to my email buddies yesterday, and was very suprised to find some had never heard of her.

    This one’s pretty cool… two of the all time greats together. Er.. make that three.

    She actually wrote that, but some evil scrote of a bloke she was involved with persuaded her to put his name on it. Another great lady with lousy taste in men unfortunately.

    Hmph, just because you know what you are talking about.

    You telling me I haven’t entertained you in the past?

  4. RAB says:

    You always entertain me my Luvver (West Country accent being affected), I wouldn’t be part of this great platform you created otherwise, would I? And thank you so much for inviting me on board.

    My clip is the best though, I think you’ll agree. Bless her hard ridden heart, she was a bit past her best on the one you chose.

    So let’s raise a glass or two, to a very special lady who deserved much better than she got.
