Natalie Cole, Tavares: New Victoria Theatre, London
Cliff White, NME, 9 October 1976
NATALIE COLE is an MOR sophisticated lady, right? An exceptional singer in the mould of Aretha Franklin who's chosen to, or been persuaded to, don the ball-gowns and sequins of respectability in order to court the middle class offspring of the Vegas set who once applauded her father, right? And therefore she's of minimal interest to soul fans and way beyond the reference of a rock audience, right?
