Some Sunday Soul
Drew's recent posting of a couple of excellent Kim Weston numbers had me reaching for her Greatest Hits & Rare Classics CD
Drew lamented that Berry Gordy appeared to not know what to do with such a talent other than have her dueting with Marvin Gaye.
This could have perhaps been because, as alluded to in Stuart Cosgrove's Detroit 67 book, that Diana Ross saw her talent as a threat and used her sway over Gordy to ensure that she was marginalised.
Not that you could ever imagine Miss Ross doing such a thing!
A true talent and still going strong aged 76
