Re-Post
 Once Again! a not very well known singer.. that is in the U.K..with a crystal clear voice and every track a gem highly recommended...if you like Ella, Sarah, Carmen, then give this L/P a listen I don't think you will be disappointed..the "Mr Wonderful" track equals "Peggy Lee's"version..

P.S. If any of you out there in the wide world want a new experience of a great singer then definitely give "Ethel" a chance !!
