    Thank you, Brother Love! I am so pleased to hear this news. Indeed, if anyone can continue to persevere and triumph it is Merry Clayton! Please keep us updated on her new release.

    I saw an advance screening of "Twenty Feet From Stardom" and after the screening Merry performed Leon Russell's "A Song For You" live. She was wonderful and received a standing ovation.

    I just got mine. It is beautifully packaged. I have not played the vinyl yet because I've had all these tracks on CD or digitally for years. I love the book. Great pictures of the young, beautiful...

    Sure, counting it as chronological decades.

    I was counting the actual years start to finish. Mathis first recorded in 1956 and last in 2017 -- 61 years. Bassey first recorded in 1957 and last in...

    Yep! You beat me to it. I believe Johnny Mathis has consistently recorded more original material than any other popular music artist in history. Starting in 1956 and his last studio recording of...

    I hope Dionne will be well. She has had at least one bankruptcy and her touring schedule was pretty robust so I assume she was doing it because she needed the money. She will be 80 and should be...

    Wow, I was only familiar with Troop's recording of this song. I didn't know it was a remake of a Jacksons song.

    Perhaps it has and I missed it. I think there could be other good stuff that I am missing. There is obviously greater depth to her catalog than the most popular or frequently played tracks. So for...

    I think her penance should be recording an audio book of "Secrets of a Sparrow." I believe she would be overcome by shame and regret having to speak aloud the inane ramblings in that book.
