Where the hell has AMY WINEHOUSE been hiding herself? Well... In England, apparently. I guess she's fairly well-known there, but I have to admit to never having heard of her till just a few days ago.
But what a voice. Soulful. Funky. Poppy. Instantly distinctive. And I've been grooving on retro-'60s female vocalists for a good long while now.
Ms. Winehouse's second album, BACK TO BLACK, was released last year -- overshadowed in some quarters by the woman's penchant for partying and, specifically, boozing it up in a big way. Good for her for dumping her record company when they tried to force her into rehab.
Obviously, she doesn't just have a voice; she has balls, too.
