Incredibly beautiful women with golden voices. A moment in time...Thank you both for posting!
While you guys were talking of McGuire sisters, I was just thinking about posting this. Now that you mentioned the Lennon Sisters, I certainly will... Happy new year everyone.I watched them many times on TV growing up - they were are part of my "childhood soundtrack" (as you nicely put it) too and I always enjoyed their harmonies...
But then I felt that same way about the Lennon Sisters on the old Lawrence Welk shows - always a delight to look at and listen to...Karen & Richard must have enjoyed them also.
I love Ella's Christmas CD! It's great fun! James Brown also has some great Christmas CDs - also great fun, with the occasional serious song, and I like Ray Charles' 'Spirit of Christmas'. These are three of the Christmas CDs that I try to play each year, along with the Carpenters Christmas albums and lots of King's College Choir, Cambridge. King's College Choir, Cambridge, is the Number One in Christmas music, for me.Never heard this song until it was brought up in this forum. Of course, love the Carps version and Karen's lead. Covered by so many, this version by Ella Fitzgerald stands out. So glad the two legendary divas were coupled on that Music, Music, Music Special (even though Karen's parts were lip-synced ) ;
Yvonne got a lot of airplay for her two songs from Jesus Christ Superstar, in which she also starred, and then with the song Love Me, my personal favorite of hers. The latter was followed by Hello Stranger and then If I Can't Have You from Saturday Night Fever. This was a Number 1 single. A few more singles followed but did not get much airplay in this market.I agree. I thought her remake of Baby I’m Yours was awesome. She had a couple more hits and then just kind of faded. Maybe it was the Saturday Night Fever, disco backlash, she suffered here in the states. I’m glad the format never died in Europe, especially England. Still going strong! It’s just not called disco anymore. Most of those pop acts in the 80’s and 90’s adopted the synthesizer dance beats, and sold millions of recordings with them.
I used the wrong Barbara Lewis remake. Of course it was Hello Stranger, not Baby I’m Yours. I apologize for the error. It was sooo long ago, college years. Thank you.
Crystal can be a joy to listen to with the right songs - very unique and sweet voice - one of my favorite albums is her "Ain't Gonna Worry" album with some really good songs from beginning to end...Crystal Gayle "Ready For The Times To Get Better" (from 1976 BUT reissued in early 1978) (audio only)
Did I or someone else post anything featuring The Seekers with Judith Durham before? Either way, here's their big hit from 1967 live from a free concert in their home town of Melbourne...always a distinctive and lovely voice.
Actually, she was mentioned at least seven times in this thread before now, as this thread goes back to 2012, and Judith Durham did one album for A&M - A GIFT OF SONG.Did I or someone else post anything featuring The Seekers with Judith Durham before?

By the way, ‘Spy’ was a single in Japan but I’m not sure if it was released as such in other markets.Listening to Carly Simon's 1979 "Spy". The last track "Memorial Day" has sax man David Sanborn & drummer Steve Gadd at the end of the song!! I saw the 2 music videos on "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" in the Autumn of 1979 & one of the songs is "Vengeance" & I think the other was the title track.
