Anyone got a contact for anyone connected to the lass who sang He Was A Big Freak and Stepping In Her I Miller Shoes? She was on Island and Just Sunshine, there's a girl wanting to do a documentary on her.

Mmh... the former wife of Miles Davis no less. I thought she was brilliant. I have a few of her albums - Anti-love song (self-titled debut album finally appeared in 1973) is probably my favourite. She largely dispappeared from the music scene after her third album didn't sell as well as it should have. It didn't help that religious groups protested over her concert appearances (several were canceled), and radio stations refused to play a lot of her "extreme work".

Apparently she's living in Pennsylvania these days (where she was born), happy to be out of the spotlight , despite a ridiculous persisting rumour that she died a drug addict years. There have been a few articles written about her in the past couple of years but bizarrely none of these journalists have been able to locate her.

I wish your pal luck.

The only person I know of to have recently tracked her down in 2002 was a journo by the name of James Maycock and he stated then that she was reclusive it won't be easy. Dont have a contact for said journo either. Sorry.
