    Bobby , I don't know. I'm quoting reese on that one. I divided his post but didn't credit him on the second part , I see the confusion. I'll fix it!

    For my tastes , Phyllis Hyman is the standout voice that most wrongly got denied a proper taste of fame. Hard to believe that her distinctive sound never found its way to the Top 40. I personally...
