/ Alison Moyet
But I've just re-discovered the 'Hoodoo' album. What a voice! What a stonking voice. She is surely up there with the great female vocalists. And she has a great attitude....
How totally weird, I was thinking of her last night!

Really? in a girl crush kind of why? ;-)
She was on Radio 2 the other week talking about her life and the new album, very interesting story and prompted me to get the new album
Only You !
as brilliantly covered by The Flying Pickets.
'Rise'. That's the one - 'Baby loose that frying pan / you don't live to feed that man'.
I remember her performance on Live Aid when she duetted with Paul Young. She blew him out of the water!
The Flying Pickets!!! Worthy of another thread. Or linking to the Scargill thread that is currently on-going :-)
Alf - a great album, also recently rediscovered. You're spot on about the quality of her vocal ability, distinctive and powerful.
Makes me want to dig out some more old music, good thread...
Brian Hibbards passing makes watching the U-tube clip of 'Only You' even more of a reflective journey than it used to be.

Woman with legendary reputation (and mainstream acknowledgement) for powerful voice has "stonking voice" shocker :-)
