Lee Gibson

It's been a while since Lee Gibson's showed up in these parts. I recall a session with the Ray Chester Band in Brunswick Chapel and a gig at Darlington - I think these were about 10 years, maybe further back. The lady knocked me out then and CDs were purchased. Now, listening again to Linger Awhile - Lee Gibson Sings - , I recall those sessions and send a request to Santa Claus that she appears here once more (Tyneside) soon*. A songstress comparable with the very best.
Lee was great with the Ray Chester Band - imagine her with Strictly Smokin'?! An unlikely scenario but we can dream can't we?
Lance.
* Santa didn't come through with the Merc last year so I doubt if he can cope with this, even greater, request but my fingers are crossed! I've even got my Mojo workin'!
