15, 16 and 17: Balham Dance Studio; Fred Locks: Liberty Cinema, London
Vivien Goldman, Sounds, 13 May 1978
15, 16 AND 17 appeared at the Balham Dance Studio, a large, pretty empty room. (It was virtually an unadvertised gig). 15, 16 and 17 are a female vocal trio aged — here it comes, inevitability fans — 15, 16 and 17. All their singles have been hits in the roots reggae market, and they're the kind of sob-sweet soul that could so easily be played on the radio and be crossover hits that it's a living embarrassment to British radio structure that they're not.
