Her voice~flute-like, smoky and sensual, frequently in the space of the same song~was similarly unique. Over a decade after her death, she remains a show business legend~yet she also remains an enigma, a completely self-fabricated, difficult yet strangely vulnerable woman who allowed few access to her complex, in turns exhuberant and neurotic world where at times there was little difference between reality and make-believe.HELEN SHAPIRO: The teenage sensation whose commercial career ended as the other Brit Girls were coming into their own, though she went on to be a fine, successful jazz-singer.Contains full 1960s UK and European vinyl discographies.
