Those of you who are LITTLE FEAT fans may have heard that they are touring Europe (including UK) in May. You may not have heard that they have decided to "let go" (a term we are hearing a lot these days) their lead singer of over 15 years, the amazing Shaun Murphy. Seeing her in action at Hopetoun House, near Edinburgh in 2000, I wrote, "Shaun Murphy's version of Dylan's It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes a Train To Cry was as passionate and dirty a blues as I've ever seen performed...." If you'd like to hear the great lady in action go straight to
Love, Sue
