Brit Girls of the Sixties Volume Three: Cilla Black, Sandie Shaw & Lulu
Cilla Black was the only important British female singer to emerge from the ",Mersey Sound", explosion of the early 1960s. The archetypal girl-next-door, her speciality was powerhouse Continental ballads, with which she was unrivalled. ",The Barefoot Princess From Dagenham",, Sandie Shaw was one of the decade's most alluring images. She topped the British charts three times and romped to victory in the Eurovision Song Contest at a time when the songs were worth listening to. Lulu was the wee Scottish lassie with the voice which could demolish a skyscraper. Hers was a bigger struggle than most, from Glasgow tenement block to superstardom. She starred in one good movie, was the only Brit Girl to top the US charts, married a Bee Gee, and also won Eurovision. Like Sandie, following a slump in her career she briefly returned to chart glory, singing with the boy band, Take That. Also in this series: Volume One: Dusty Springfield & Helen Shapiro, Volume Two: Marianne Faithfull & Kathy Kirby.
