Gloria Lynne On Fontana Info Needed?

Recommended Posts

Was talking to Ged Lunt at the bar in Bury Town Hall last Friday night. He asked me about a Gloria Lynne record on Fontana that he played in the downbeat lounge at the last Soul Essence. Said it was a beat ballad type thing and he thought everybody would know it but they didnt.

Didnt write the details down like I normally do and I'm fairly certain I've remembered what he said - anybody chip in with more details/comments?

cheers, derek

Iv`e got a copy of a thing by Gloria Lynne " Sometimes it be`s that way " on Fontana,I can`t remember what the b side is but " Sometimes........" is an uptempo beefy sort of cut.I don`t think she did much else on fontana,so it could be the other side of the one I`ve mentioned.

phew Denbo thanks for posting up her discog. Sorta naively thought she'd only done a couple of tunes on Fontana and the one I was talking about would be obvious (laughs). DP makes note - next time write details down.....
