Best Female Vocalists of the '70s


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Crystal Gayle

When she sang about making here green eyes greener - wow and that silky blonde hair - wow

Simply a Goodess of American Country-Pop. I fell in love with her voice only three years ago when she already had retired from singing. Hard to find such a beautiful voice and such tender songs in our days.

I thought she had long dark brown hair?

63Sandy Denny

Sad loss oh so long ago, if you have never heard of her look her up there's lots of her music on YouTube. So much talent!

Melody Maker readers twice voted her the "Best British Female Singer" in 1970 and 1971

64Nancy Wilson

Nancy has a voice that fills a room! Great to this day!

G'na: "HELLO YOUNG LOVERS" Was my first Love Affair with The sound of NANCY WILSON & I was probably 8 yrs old. After house-chores were done & as I got older when my Momma left us alone we'd play "Nite Club" & pretend we were owners & play jazz music & Nancy Wilson was the Star! That song was my favorite growing up, it stuck with me! TALENT & SHE GAVE THE SAME FOR CHART AT THE Concerts for Don Bosco Hall in Detroit (my Mom worked there) where I last saw her perform, she was "GREAT", Up close & personal! #1

65Ella Fitgerald

Wonderful singer songwriter. "Stay With Me Till Dawn" introduced Miss Tzuke to our ears but her preceding albums are even better. Ex: Sportscar, Ritmo, Shoot the Moon and I am the Pheonix and she is still making wonderful music 2015
