Many years ago, I was a pleasant chum with a lovely lady who was a singer in a jazz cklub in Hastings.

She was great fun, and began to make some vibes in London, with some sort of 'agent' who turned out to be useless!

But there is a plot to this, as another pal told me that when 'Big spender' was written, she was pencilled in for the song, but the 'agent' found that Shirley Bassey might want it, and so she did!

My old lovely friend is unwell, in another country on her own, so I heard.

Bummer really...
