OK. So which female artists NOT associated with duo, group etc would make your top 10. Here's mine..in no particular order
Jane Olivor, particularily her 1977 release “Chasing Rainbows”..one of the top 5 (unknown) albums of the entire ‘70’s, in my opinion. Jane Olivor has one of the most beautiful voices on earth. (she has been described as an American Edith Piaf.) Her control and phrasing is breathtaking.
I still listen to this album at least twice each month..yes, sometimes more often. Even after some 33 years; “Chasing Rainbows” is still one of the finest albums that I’ve ever heard. It’s still in print too! Check out Amazon..
I knew I shouldn’t have added Bjork :-)
Anyone add Sade?
Great “get the babe in the mood” music. LOL.
Sarah Vaughn....the Divine
Diane Krall.....Ms Coooool
Eartha Kitt.....exuded SEEEEX
Doris Day.......when she was with the Big Bands
Eydie Gorme.....when she was on her Latin Kick (Sabor a mi)
Barbara Cook....great in musicals
Nancy Wilson....met her once in Puerto Rico..que bella
Yma Sumac......not well known but what a set of pipes
Rosey Clooney..she could do anything... remember “commana my housa?
I’d put Streisand in for talent but any “artist” with God-given talents who thinks we care about their political
views is off my list.
I have never heard of her, BUT I will try to find some of her music..THX
I’ll add my vote for Karen Carpenter ... like hot silky chocolate over cold vanilla ice-cream ...
You left out Dinah Washington....
B I L L I E
H O L I D A Y
How could Janis Joplin not be on a top list... My gawd what were you thinking! LOL!
Rickie Lee Jones
I second Karen Carpenter and Cass Eliot, and add Connie Francis.
Sade....if you can’t get over with her on then hang it up son, you’ve got no game.
Sarah Dugas of the Duhks. The best female vocalist you’ve never heard of:
