  •  Well, always a favorite of mine (8+ / 0-)

    possibly because we were of the same era.  Had her album, Strange Fruit, in the 60's.  She and Eartha Kitt, who everyone thought was a lightweight until she stood up to Lady Bird Johnson in a public meeting (she was never a lightweight, people just stereotyped her because of some of her playful songs), were only two of my favorites

    So glad you discovered her.  There's more.  

    Just waitin' around for the new Amy Winehouse album
