I Sing the Supremes Part 2.

I fancy myself Diana Ross and here I am channelling her style of free singing that is liberated from the tyranny of the melody and consistent keys. Not to make excuses, but the circumstances under which this was recorded were two tape recorders playing in both ears earlier recordings of the song while I accompanied myself on guitar and kazoo and attempted to sing in tune and remember the words while not getting too close to the 3rd tape recorder's microphone so as to drown out everything else. Something of a technological tour de force, in my view. Recorded in 1983, in Throckley. the rock'n'roll capital of the world.

This is also the conclusive evidence as to from whence Lily's vocal abilities do come.
