Does anyone out there know why Julie London never recorded another album after 1969’s “Yummy Yummy Yummy”? It’s a mystery to me why she dedicated the 1970s to playing Nurse Dixie McCall in the TV series “Emergency” (alongside her husband Bobby Troup), and effectively turned her back on the music business. To some, this spared her from venturing into the realms of disco - like Ann-Margret, for instance - but I feel a sense of loss. Her seductive voice and interpretations were always unique, wonderful - and deeply groovy.

This, this, this! A must for London lovers.

Singers Nicole Wray and Terri Walker started their musical careers literally thousands of miles apart — one, in Virginia, the other, in London. Wray began as an up-and-coming R&B protégé to rapper Missy Elliott; Walker studied opera and received a Mercury Prize nomination for her debut solo album.

However, after their two separate careers stalled, the two eventually met in New York and teamed up to form Lady — a dually-led band with a classic soul sound that recently released a debut self-titled album. The two join us on Soundcheck for a live performance — and improptu dance party.
