    Thanks for sharing. I hadn't seen that documentary style vid, but I saw this one years ago...



    I might have been a lot more religious if I had gone to church with this lady!!!

    I really like this one. It looks like she's showing up for Sunday church, and then she throws down:

    Ah that wonderful old footage again! You can tell she wasn't English as she was surprised that it rained in Manchester! Apparently she changed her set list at the last moment so she could start with Didn't It Rain.

    We have had a couple of great documentaries on TV about this wonderful woman, & she has a place in British music history as she was one of the very first of the great blues/gospel artists to come over here in the early 60s.

    And her personal life was quite, erm, colourful too. ;)

    Chester isn't that far from Manchester (not if you're from the USA!), perhaps she called in there when she was touring over here?

    Perhaps she stayed there? Tours were very different back in the 1960s.

    Perhaps that was one of the hotels she stayed in where she tried to get into George Melly's bed after the show? Apparently she was quite a lively lass.... ;)

    An excellent documentary, thanks so much for posting this.
    A Missourian, this phrase is tremendously familiar to me. Witnessing those in unspeakable grief, sometimes nothing else comes from the heart more fitting than "bless your heart.
    When a person speaks or sings joy and hope when it's hard to find it's elicits the same response.
    Just a humble opinion from an old country boy.

    I think it has a whole different meaning here, but is often heard.

    No doubt. This phrase is also used very frequently by polite southern women to thinly veil an insult- usually to someone's intelligence.

    Same here, but not thinly veiled, not veiled at all. :D

    It seems to have different connotation depending upon the region. To me, it is a salute to the tremendous contribution she made to the music world.

    Aside from her incredible chops and singing, I thing she has great taste in guitars.
