Coates Of Many Colours

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, February 1977

IT'S FUNNY how some people look much better in real life than on photo. To date, I really haven't seen a good, accurate photograph of Odia Coates – one that captures that unique magnetic beauty that is simply part of her. It doesn't require make-up or any of the other falsities that most people need to accentuate their good looks.
