I am about to do my Tesco shopping order, and there was a CD that I wanted to order. I saw it advertised on TV the other night, it was the greatest hits album of a black female byegone era singer, and I can't think for the life of me who she was, or what she sang. Anyone have any ideas from my brief description who she could be? It was a heavy drinking night last night, and my brain just isn't working!!
