I have just received three e-mails from Sharon regarding various webisodes.
Sharon worked with Ollie McClaughlin, Deon Jackson and Barbara Lewis.
She wrote one of my favourite songs "I have no choice" for Johnnie Mae.
In short, it was a dream to hear from her and I will attempt to persuade her onto the forum.

great stuff,have you heard her brilliant tracks called,
'Got to find another guy' on Karen records and also 'Here comes the boy I love/Love is Wonderful' on Karen records(no319).
It would be great to hear from her.

Great news ! let's hope Sharon will keep in touch
as her part the Carla / Karen / Moira story deserves telling.
If I can find it I did a listing of all her songs
registered with BMI that I could trace releases for - I'll post it if I do - if not I can always

Mel and Davie
Thanks for a speedy response!
Unfortunately I had to tell Sharon that I have never heard any of her own 45's.
I hope you can find that detail Davie.
Sharon has been telling me how she worked at United Sound with Don Davis when she was only 12 years of age.
Incredible or what?!

Please send Sharon my regards. I would love to speak to her since the label I work for (Tuff City) will be reissuing Johnnie Mae Matthews' work in the near future.
