Bit contemporary for you HH.
For all the while I've been posting on this site I was thinking Gracie Fields and Marie Lloyd were more your era.
Joking aside she was a bit of a trailblazer for British female singers in the 60's but I can only remember Walking Back to Happiness which she recorded when she was in her early teens.
In my book the two best and consistent British female singers although they were a bit thin on the ground in that era were Petula Clark and Dusty Springfield.
Dagenham's own Sandie Shaw was pretty good and a very down to earth girl but the classic tune from a 60's Brit girl was this from the face of '68.
Yes old Bob penned many classics covered by others Blowing in the wind and The times they are a changing by Peter Paul and Mary but nothing beats this by the god of the guitar the great James Marshall Hendrix!
Ah but Connie we cant forget Freddie and the Dreamers and Peter and Gordon.
The former I suppose at best a bit of harmless fun and the latter and copy of Burtons shop window mannequins that made Roger Ramsey look vibrant in comparison.
