  1. Have you heard Eleanore Mills' latest release HIgher Ground yet? Eleanore Mills’ recording career began with the release of what has become a very collectable LP issued on All Platinum’s subsidiary label Astroscope. Her seductive powerful sound caught the attention of Norman Connors and Roberta Flack who were both keen to work with her. Throughout her career Eleanore has continued to experiment and adapt, both embracing and driving changing music tastes and is still writing and recording. http://shinyl.co.uk/2018/07/26/eleanore-mills/
