Liz Fraser has made one solo album. Unfortunately she hasn't released it.

Gutted, as then I’d have had her in my list in this.

I’d have Liz Fraser right up there close to the final for this, I absolutely love/adore her voice, could just be my favourite female vocalist of all time.

 

But she’s regrettably not a solo artist.
 

Was in band, makes guest appearances on other peoples records but no solo albums.

 

Wish she’d do more though. Could listen to her voice all day.

Great shout out.

I was thinking much the same about Debbie Harry and Karen Carpenter.

We should give the ladies a pass for being in a band given how popular music is mainly male driven and performed,or at least the business side is and those businessmen often decide who gets to perform and who doesn't.

Kate Bush.

PJ Harvey.

Cat Power.

Dolly Parton.

Laurie Anderson.

Angel Olsen.

Lhasa de Sela.

 

Artists from classical music should really be excempt from this, as it’s just a whole different ball game, as they say. I kind of feel the same of jazz, as you could easily fill all 7 slots with jazz greats. Then again, I guess the same could be said of country music greats.

Maybe in the bands category. There is more than enough solo women to be able to compose a list of seven names of proper solo artists.

Mary J Blige is a good shout but you need to focus on her 90s stuff which was a lot better. Pink is shite. Whitney Houston had a great voice but I really don't like most of her stuff.

I was thinking about Alicia Keys

I couldn't keep from crying

When she was born in Hell's Kitchen I was living down the line.

I'm wondering where in the world Alicia Keys could be.

I was aware she may have done one or two singles, but nothing about an extended back catalogue.

They weren’t particularly successful her albums apparently, biggest solo was a cover of Dream a little dream. She was cool in Pufnstuff.

    • Borussia Monchengladbach and Germany midfielder Florian Neuhaus, 24, remains a target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, but the Reds will not be able to meet his price tag of around £34m. (Sport1 - in German). While both the Mancs are spending like drunk sailors (not referring to you of course Stig ), we can't afford 34 million?      
    • Great post, and very much my position. No real issue with FSG owning us, just wish they would let up a bit on the whole self sustaining thing and pitch a bit of their own obvious wealth into the transfer pot.
    • Trent Alexander-Arnold has expressed his delight in signing a new four-year deal.   The Liverpool right back put pen to paper on the new deal yesterday which will keep the boyhood Red at the club until 2025.   Speaking to the Official site, Trent spoke of his delight.   “I'm honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be given an extension. So, it was a no-brainer for me. The state the club is in and where I'm at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I'm here longer is always a good thing. I'm made up.    As someone who joined the Liverpool academy at the age of six, Alexander-Arnold said that the club has meant so much to him.   “I mean, it's the only club I've ever really known. So to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family. It's a proud moment for me – it always is – signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling."   At just 22, the footballing resume of Alexander-Arnold is glittering on a individual and team level and one that most players would be delighted with for the entirity of their career.   Reflecting on what he has achieved to this point, the League and European Champion takes nothing for granted.   “I've achieved so many dreams and goals that I never actually thought I would. I live the dream every day really.   "Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world class every day is a privilege for me and I'm very fortunate to be in the position I am.”   Top clubs are meticulous in the planning for the next phase, and careful to not being caught out when the end of the cycle comes.   Speculation has begun over who may succeed Jordan Henderson as the next captain and despite being so young himself, Alexander-Arnold says that he is trying to impart some of his knowledge that he has learnt from his senior teammates onto the next generation.   “I've been around some amazing leaders. Hendo Millie and Virg were definitely up there as the three best that I've been in and around. I'm privileged to be able to pick up things and learn things from them. They're all different leaders in their own way – some lead by their actions and some by their words. But at the end of the day, leadership is leadership.   “I think I've been in and around the lads enough time now to not see myself as a young player. Someone who's a mature lad, capable of fulfilling those roles and being a captain without necessarily having the armband on your arm is something that I've always wanted to try to be.    “So just being a role model for the younger players, trying to keep them on the right path and being there for encouragement when they need that. Just mentoring, I'd say – kind of what like Hendo and Millie were doing to me when I was a bit younger. Then just kind of nurturing them into young men that are capable of achieving anything really.”     Reflecting on a difficult past season, Alexander-Arnold said that despite no silverware, securing Champions League football was seen as a worthy achievement.   However winning honours is their sole focus for the 2021/22 season.   “The previous seasons we were there with silverware and we were on top of the world – world champions, Premier League champions, we had everything under the belt.   "Then to be kind of brought back down to earth last season with a lot of road bumps in the way, speed bumps on the journey, we overcame them. It kind of felt like a little bit of an achievement to secure top four in the way that it was looking throughout the season at certain points.   “We have our sights set on trophies, that's our aim. It's no longer top four or doing well, Europe and things like that, getting to quarters and semis.   "We want to be in a title run coming into May, we want to be in the Champions League final, we want to be in the domestic cup finals. We want to go as far as we can. I think this season we'll be fighting on all fronts to win as many trophies as we can."

    • Varane hasn’t quite lived up to his initial promise but he’s still a better defender than the alternatives, so he’ll improve them for sure. Most would take him over Gomez. I probably wouldn’t swap them right this minute but for a ‘fantasy’ team, Varane would get the nod alongside Virge.
