    Cold Blood, Lydia, 1974, WB US, BS 2806

    Lydia Pense and Cold Blood with the funky Memphis Horns. Great voice. Guitars and production by Steve Cropper. Underrated. After all these years, we have to concede: a great voice. Still on the road and going strong!

    Maggie Bell, As Suicide Sal, 1975, Polydor England, SUPER 2383 313

    Stone The Crows' high energy voice: Maggie Bell. A great album, rich in variety. Recorded in Ringo Starr's Startling Studio at Tittenhurst Park in Ascot with her tour band.
    Pete Wingfield, keyboards. Jimmy Page guitar solos on two tracks.
    Listen to B3, the best version of Lennon/McCartney's "I saw him (her) standing there" you've ever heard.

    Agreed. Inga Rumpf always has been one of the most prominent female voices in the German rock and blues history.

    Best regards!

    Fanny, Mothers Pride, 1973, Reprise Germany, REP 44 233

    Produced, engineered and mixed by Todd Rundgren at Secret Sound Studios. "The Wizard" had tickled out so much positive energy and creativity of these female musicians. The duchesses are Jean and June Millington, Alice de Buhr and Nickey Barclay.

    Savage Rose, Refugee, 1971, Gregar US, GG 104

    Anisette: expressive vocals. Danish psychedelic rock.
    The range of Anisette's voice, both in terms of octaves and emotions, is incredible in every way, and the band's assimilation of seemingly all the major developments of R&B for the past ten years, combined with the classical elements, is astonishing...(cit. Ed Ward, Rolling Stone, March 1971)
    Plus: fat Hammond/Leslie sounds. This one was produced by Jimmy Miller & Joe Zagarini at Stargroves, London

    Millie Jackson, Live & Uncensored, 1985, Towerbell France, 406508, 2LP

    In these times today not political correct (anymore): we love to listen to the "**** U Symphony" A7.
    Very ****-ing fun...and a great performance by a fearless soul duchess. Accompanied by The Easy-Ak-Shun Band, The East Coast Horns and The Muscle Shoals Horns. What a ****ing funky barn burner!
    PS.: in Switzerland we don't use those four stars for those four-letter-words. In fact, we don't have any..., do we?

    Enestine Anderson, Never Make Your Move Too Soon, 1980, Concord USA, CJ 147

    That rich, warm, sultry, infinitely sensitive voice is the embodiment of Ernestine Anderson.
    Monty Alexander p, Ray Brown b, Frank Gant dr.
    The pace-changes in the album rollercoaster through never-a-dull-moment modes (cit. Edith Hamilton, liner notes on back cover sleeve). Agreed.
    At Jazzwoche Burghausen, Germany 2006: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEOBpeJJORk

    One of my favorites. The legendary Christine Perfect. Before Fleetwood Mac. Hard to find, but well worth searching for.

    Does anybody remember Fanny? They were one of the very first American all-female rock bands, active in the first half of the 1970ies. Until very recently, I've never been aware of them, not even in my youth when I thought I know everything and everybody in rock music . I first heard of them just a few days ago, and, say, I'm enthusiastic about them! These four ladies were June Millington on guitar, her sister Jean on bass guitar, Alice de Buhr on drums and Nickey Barclay on keyboards. Real duchesses, I'd say!

    Here are two out of a couple of videos, brilliantly shot, as ever, by the team of German TV station Radio Bremen for a Beat-Club broadcast in 1971. Please note the competent guitar and bass works, the powerful drumming and the solid performance at the Hammond TTR-100 organ:

    The other one is a beatle-esque anthem on German manufacturer Hermann Lanz AG, nowadays a subsidiary of John Deere. Note the terrific four piece vocal harmonies:



    Sadly, I don't own any Fanny record or CD.

    Best regards and have fun!

    I have shown "Fanny" in February 2022 here: http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...l=1#post440190
    It's fun, indeed!
