Genuinely saddened today to hear of the death of the one of the truly great original disco divas.
64 seems quite young, but hopefully Loleatta's family and friends can take some solace in knowing she had - still has - countless fans all over the world. Anyway, what can I say? So not gonna bang on, but RESPECT is most definitely due.
Oh, and in case this is actually news to anyone this late in the day, here's what BBC News had to say about it. I do quibble with the fact they've reduced her illustrious career to 'was sampled by Black Box' but at least she made the front page.
