Hi, "GENIE" on Verve by Terri Bryant.Don't know anything about her,but she sounds luvverly.probably in her 60's now but age is just a number right :thumbsup: .

One line of GENIE she sings.." if you're arrsking to much " or similar ,with emphasis on the "arsking". Sounds like a suvverner or AUSSIE .

Any info on Miss Bryant??

She's American.

She was in an incarnation of 5th Dimension in 1978 and later sang on cruise ships, where, by all accounts, she was a prone to be bit shirty if she didn't get the applause she thought she deserved.

She was also on album called New Directions with Jazz singer Bobby Wade. Not sure where she was born but if it was North Carolina, the girl second from left could be her around 1965/66.

Great pic Tony!

I've got another, even better one from the same photo shoot, which I seem to have temporarily mislaid. Will post it up if it resurfaces (which it invariably will, when I'm not looking for it....)

Yes and very little persuasion needed as I've always quite liked it - got that Detroit feel to it....it's on a revival path for me now so will play it again.....

but then again so is Connie Laverne Tony! :thumbsup:

Love her "Straighten Up And Fly Right/ Everythings Wonderful" also on Verve :thumbsup:

Godz whats this about a Neptune LP ? Not the Philly Neptune surely?

Cheers Paul

Found this about Terri taken from a Bobby Wade biography written by Andrew Hamilton:

He (Bobby Wade) joined Terri Bryant and New Direction, their gigs took them to Las Vegas in 1974 and Wade met Richard Barrett, founder of Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers, singer with the Valentines, and manager of the Three Degrees.

Also, Terri sang on the 'Enchantment of the Seas' cruise liner and was reported to be 'very good' along with the comedian. Jo

Yeah, same Neptune Paul. In fact there's one on eBay at the moment - which is where I've just nicked these pics from. Item 170094415366 and Buy it Now for $39.99 if anyone's interested.

I've answered my own question though. There was a Neptune thread on here and although Bryant wasn't mentioned, the LP was described as 5th Dimension type soul/pop (which figures) and not very interesting.

The epitome of quality sixties soul - utterly utterly wonderful. What's not to like?

:(:thumbsup::sleep3::thumbsup:

Exactly....this has got the lot - heartache and misery, drama, pleading vocals, huge production, cheesy lyrics, big hair, slingbacks, chiffon, spot on backing vocals, vibes....sorry, I'm beginning to dribble :wicked: Always been a monster tune with me :thumbsup: Jo
