Betty Wright RIP

This year is just going from bad to worse. Yesterday Little Richard went, today we've lost the great Betty Wright.

Betty has been a big personal favourite ever since the mid-1980s when I first heard "Pain" and was blown away. I was lucky enough to see her live about eight years ago in a small venue (the Jazz Café in Camden) and she was every bit as wonderful as I had hoped.

She was still making great records as well - 2011's "The Movie" album was up there with the best. As is she now. RIP Ms Wright.
