Claudia Lennear: Brown Sugar Lady

Andrew Tyler, Disc, 27 January 1973

A CLUSTER of fly-bursting, brown-skinned ladies has become pretty much standard roadshow equipment for plenty of white rock bands these past few years. The lead could fairly have said to have come from Ike and Tina Turner, whose Ikettes have been pitching their voices and skirts almost as high as Tina since around 1969.
