    I'd add Jean Carne but as her story is still unfolding in this time, she and her ex Doug
    reconciled a couple of years ago, so I doubt Unsung would dare to write a tale still
    being told...
    I couldn't agree with you more regarding Brenda & The Tabs, Splanky. So many beautiful records -- many of which were Van McCoy-related, no less -- yet they remain, sadly, buried in the shadows.

    I know they are more jazz/world music than soul but should Hugh Masekela and Manu Dibango have an unsung episode?

    Richard Pryor is hardly unsung

    But I feel his TV shows are

    I’d love an episode of unsung Hollywood on both his short lived (4 episodes) sketch comedy show - precursor to in living color

    And Pryors Place his tv show for children

    Double Exposure, First Choice, Mary Wilson, En Vogue, Patti Labelle and the Bluebelles, Bettye Lavette, George Benson, Dee Dee Sharp, The Intruders, The Sweet Inspirations, and the Three Degrees need Unsung episodes, in my humble opinion. PS. Add Roberta Flack to that list.

    I would have to slightly disagree with that one Saint. There are quite a few millennials and Gen Zs who have never even heard of Richard Pryor. I’ve had to to explain to many of my contemporaries who he was upon referencing him.

    That is sad and disturbing

    ‘Never even heard of Richard Pryor?’

    How is that possible? It would be like never even hearing of Muhammad Ali

    The new season is starting next month. If you had Betty Wright, Billy Paul or Al Jarreau on your want list, your in for a surprise.

    Don’t forget Dru Hill, who’s story is kicking off the new season. It also been confirmed that the Jones Girls are going to be featured possibly later this year. I guess they realize there’s still an audience for 70s artists.
