Default Re: Favourite Female Vocalists

- Dusty Springfield - her albums always had great drummers, most notably around the early 70s, when she was recording in the USA with the Atlantic and Philadelphia rhythm sections and the likes of Carole Kaye was on bass.

- Imogen Heap (solo artist...but check her doing 'Blanket' and 'Rolling & Tumblin'' on Jeff Beck's '...Live at Ronnie Scott's DVD)

- Bonnie Bramlett during her Delaney & Bonnie days. Here she is with Sam Clayton (congas) and Kenney Gradney (bass) - both later of Little Feat - and drummer Chuck Morgan. Prior to this band drummers included Jim Keltner and Jim Gordon, and on the 'Home' album', Booker T & the MGs with Al Jackson Jr.

- Kate Bush...especially the earlier years

And all those chicks we've heard doing back-up vocals...Claudia Linnear, Merry Clayton (Sam's sister, best known for the sensational wailing on the Stone's 'Gimmer Shelter'), Vicki Brown, Sam Brown, Madeline Bell and Lesley Duncan (Dusty's go-to gals), Vannetta Fields, Clydie King, Patrice Holloway...So, so many, and each worthy of their own stardom.
