With all the attention Duffy has gotten over the last twelve months, it is worth remember those who have travelled the same ground but without the same level of coolness. Not that she doesn't deserve it but there can be a tendency by the more youthful to believe such voices came out of the blue. About two decades back we had Carmel who sadly in my view was overly tagged as simple easy listening.
Carmel - Sally
Carmel - Bad Day
So Duffy isn't the first nasally twanged chanteuse we've had to delight us.
Click below for Duffy's: Rain on your Parade (Polydor have disabled embedding from YouTube) for comparison.
Imagine if Carmel had had a Mark Ronson type around at the time to produce her stuff.
