This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Joanne Williams (vocals / backing vocals)

(Also known as: Joanne Stone)
BANDS:
  • Glovertones
  • Ashton & Lord
  • Chris Farlowe Band
  • Birds Of Paris
  • James Last Orchestra
  • R & J Stone
  • Bookham And Riskett

BIOGRAPHY:

Fantastic singer, Joanne Williams appears in many albums. After meeting Russell Stone while singing together in the James Last Orchestra, they married, thus becoming Joanne Stone.

It's a pity that her career was truncated so soon, when she died due to a malignant brain tumour in 1979.


GLOVERTONES


This gospel group was formed probably around 1958, by Madeline Bell and Joanne Williams (who were cousins, being only 16 at that time):

I haven´t any other details, sorry. Madeline stayed 2 years with them.


ASHTON & LORD


After leaving Family, Tony Ashton teamed with his mate Jon Lord. They recorded an album with lots of friends and guests, First of the big bands. Some guests in the album are: Jim Cregan (guitar), Jerry Donahue (guitar), Peter Frampton (guitar), Pat Donaldson (bass), Dick Parry (sax), Howie Casey (horns), Dave Caswell (trumpet), Mike Davies (trumpet), John Mumford (trombone), Frank Ricotti (percussion), Carmine Appice (drums), Terry Cox (drums), Ian Paice (drums), and backing vocals by Madeline Bell, Tony Ferguson, Jimmy Helms, Kenny Rowe, Graham White, Joanne Williams, Roger Willis.

The album was released in March 1974, but some months later, Ashton & Lord wanted to play a live concert to promote it. That's when they assemble an all-star lineup:

They had a big hit with their song ´We do it´, releasing two albums, but success was not repeated, and they didn´t work as a duo any more even if they recorded a third album that remains unreleased.


BOOKHAM AND RISKETT


Bookham And Riskett was a sort of pseudonym for Vicki Brown and Joanne Williams, in order to release some material, avoiding contractual obligations.

As far as I know, they released a single in 1979, ´We got a love / Bama-Lama-Boogie´, but I don´t know if there was more material. Anybody knows?

    Kay Garner (backing vocals)


    BANDS:
    • Dusty Springfield Band
    • Elton John Band [May 70]
    • Birds Of Paris
    • James Last Orchestra [1976]
    • The International Pop Proms [1977]
    • The Ladybirds [2005]

    BIOGRAPHY:

    Superb vocalist, Kay Garner appears in countless albums and sessions. She was born on October 4th, 1943.

    At the beginning of her career, she did mostly studio work, but also appeared live with Elton John, James Last and others. In the late seventies, she started to do sessions in disco albums. But she also worked singing in many jingles.

    After a long career, she sadly lost her battle with emphysema on July 16th, 2007. But her voice will remain forever in so many great albums.

    As I´m sure I´m missing many albums with her, I'd like if someone knows of more album, please write an email. She worked with many greats, such as John Lennon, George Harrison, Neil Diamond, Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdinck, Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano, Eric Clapton, and in the jazz camp, with Oscar Peterson, Tubby Hayes or Ted Heath. Does anybody know on which albums, please?

    Kay Garner was part of Dusty Springfield live band for some time, but I can´t find proper info about the period and the musicians, so any help would be very appreciated. From what I can understand, this should happened sometime between 1966 and 1970, when The Echoes were Dusty´s backing band:
