Cleo Laine, brilliant documentary
I strongly recommend you to see the Cleo Laine documentary on BBC iPlayer.
I bought the All About Me Cleo Laine LP well over 50 years ago, and I once saw her with the Johnny Dankworth band in Worthing.
So I knew she was a wonderful singer with a great voice and a three octave range. But when I saw the BBC documentary, which included many of her performances, shown in full, to celebrate he 95th birthday on 28th October 2022, I was astonished by her brilliance as a performer and musician.
Available on iPlayer – really something very special.
Here’s a sample of her amazing ability. The BBC documenatary has better quality and a lot of interesting info.
