FOR BROWNLIE....AS PROMISED
Poor old Brownlie has sat through endless videos of Petula Clark desperately hoping that she is going to be singing "Fever".
Well, to the best of my knowledge, although Petula is a huge fan of Peggy Lee's work and in the '70s got the chance to work with her and record her classic “Black Coffee”, she has never recorded, or even sung "Fever".
But of course Peggy did... and how she did. There are many different versions of her singing this song. This one is a bit faster than the recording, and so less sultry.... but it’s good for all that.
So Brownlie... this one is for you. I hope you enjoy it.
