          I'm going through a collection of vintage recordings by "girl groups" on a USA music board, which I pull up now and again.

          Here's a "one hit wonder" by two British girls who formed a duo named after a Renault car made in the late fifties and early sixties, or a French plane if you prefer.

          I'm sure someone will remember them.

          Here's someone "clean cut" from the sixties.



          Something less saccharine, but I do like both.

          This one's better known as a backing singer of the era.

            A Jan Bradley recording, written by Curtis Mayfield*

            It's considered a bit addictive.




            *This fella.

            I've got both in one of my jukeboxes, "but this one you have to play loud."



            Jan Bradley gave up singing in the seventies and became a social worker, I don't know why I find that amusing.

                      I'm quite partial to a bit of jazz funk/fusion. This is Jeff Lorber, piano/ organ. It's from a CD tribute to Steely Dan I have, another old pop group I like.



                      So many instruments can mimic the old Fender Rhodes sound.

                      I love this.

                      I've the original by James and Bobby Purify in one of my jukebox.

                      But I like this version by the composers.



                      How can you not like a good looking singer who can play jazz on "any saxophone you like?"

                      More Rhodes piano.



                      Same tune with an alto solo from the top of a building in Barcelona from where she comes, with a view of Gaudí's Sagrada Família behind.
