Lyn Paul, has an amazing voice, which Boy George, once likened to Concorde, because of her powerful vocals in his West End show in London, "Taboo".
She was one of The New Seekers, who had huge hits all over the world in the 1970's.
In the 1990's, Lyn wowed everyone as Mr. Johnstone, in the London West End production of "BLOOD BROTHERS", she became known as "the definitive Mr. Johnstone". Later starring in the West End of London, in "FOOTLOOSE".
Check her out on YOU TUBE, a wonderful talent, a beautiful lady.
Her album "LATE NIGHT" is a triumph!
I can't help it Lyn, "I get a little sentimental over you", "You won't find another fool like me"... I'd "Beg, steal, or borrow", just to see you.
LYN PAUL WAS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT IN BLOOD BROTHERS (LONDON'S WEST END), THE OTHER NIGHT NOV 8TH 2012, THE SHOW CLOSES AFTER 24+ YEARS TONIGHT SAT NOV 10TH, but still continues to tour.
LYN PAUL SHONE, AND LED A WONDERFUL CAST, WHO CAME BACK 5 TIMES TO CHEERS AND STANDING OVATIONS.
IMPRESSARIO BILL KENWRIGHT MISSED A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO RECORD LYN PAUL'S VOICE AS THE DEFINITIVE MRS JOHNSTONE.
CONGRATULATIONS LYN, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU AGAIN
Lyn Paul was born in the wrong decade! Her talents were wasted on a lot of the material she was contracted by Polydor to record - like other female artists in the 70s who didn't write their own material. It's testament to Lyn's powerful and emotional vocal ability that she is still working today - if you only know her from her New Seekers material; buy her album 'Late Night' - you are in for a treat. Her version of Nanci Griffiths' "Late Night Grande Hotel" is far superior to the original. Newly written track "Dance With Desire" is a revelation.
Surprisingly largely ignored.
It's about time that this wonderful voice was heard more widely.
Lyn Paul has a beautiful voice, like no other singer.
She interprets songs with so much meaning. You can actually hear every word that she sings, and yes she really can sing!
Come on, someone out there, offer LYN PAUL a recording contract.
She is a revelation, a superb singer, and an incredible lady.
Amazing voice. Her vocal range alone is worthy of greater praise, and then when you add the emotion she conveys, wow! Check out the Culture Club anniversary gig at the Royal Albert Hall on YouTube for Lyn's performance of "Talk Amongst Yourselves" from Taboo. Also, try to source her version of "A Case of You". Pure class.
Lyn is one of the most under-rated vocalists ever. It's only now; almost forty years after she left the New Seekers; that she seems to be getting the recognition she has deserved all these years. Her voice has got richer with age, with a beautiful tone and clarity other vocalists could only dream of.
The most incredible, beautiful, emotionally charged and expressive singer of all time.
My favourite New Seeker and the best Mrs. Johnstone of all time. - SteveLiddle
Lyn Paul is one the most enduring female vocalists in the UK - she may not have had the chart success she deserved; but the fact that she is still working today and has such a loyal fan base is tribute to her talents. She is warm; funny; always pleased to see and speak to her fans - AND SHE IS A FANTASTIC SINGER!
One of the most under-rated singers. The emotion in her voice on songs such as Tell Me It's Not True is incredible, you can actually feel the pain. Deserves far more recognition..
Absolutely stunning, classy lady with so many talents. A voice that tells the story of each song with so much emotion.. Very, very much underrated!
Lyn Paul's "Late Night" album which was released in 2006; needs to be re-released with a bit of promotion this time! What happened to the single release of "Late Night Grande Hotel" as stated on the album cover? I've hunted high and low and never seen a copy available anywhere!
Totally under-rated - fantastic vocal range and ability. Amazing in Blood Brothers. Should have been so much more successful in the 70s when she first left The New Seekers - still performing today though; so Lyn's been doing something right!
At last finding just a tiny bit of the recognition she deserves - it's been a long time coming! Fantastic voice - pure and clear, yet so powerful when needed. Lyn has the whole gamut of emotions in her voice. Still looks and sounds amazing at 63. In fact; if you only heard her voice, you'd swear it was a much younger woman - undisputed Mrs. Johnstone indeed
'you won't find another fool like me' was one of the best number 1's of the 1970s
Lyn never had the commercial success she deserved when she left the New Seekers. But the fact that she's still working today and appears on this list when so many of her contemporaries from the 70s are nowhere to be seen; says something about Lyn Paul's enduring talent. Incredible voice
Will someone please listen to Lyn Paul's voice, and give her a new recording contract? She looks good, and her voice is better now than ever.
Lyn sang many leads on The New Seekers albums: "Everything Changing" was great, and "A light Romance" in "Blood Brothers" was pure class.
Come on folks get her album "LATE NIGHT", NOW...
Lyn Paul sang the theme tune to the Gregory Peck Production "The Dove", the song was nominated for a Golden Globe Award: "Sail the Summer Winds", FABULOUS!
She had a great song "It oughta sell a million", a Coca-Cola advert in the 1970's. Amazing singer, she was great in "Rhinestone Mondays", and sang "Ring of Fire", "Crazy", and "Stand by your man"; see her Church Street Station appearances, out on DVD.
She moves me like no other, Lyn Paul is vocally supreme.
Someone needs to listen to her phenomenal voice, and give her a recording contact.
We cannot afford to lose that magic.
It's SO GOOD to see Lyn Paul featured on this list. She's been too underrated for far too long. One of the UK's best female vocalists - as others have said; Lyn makes you think the song she's singing was written with her in mind.
Isn't it about time Lyn's back catalogue was available on CD? I love 'Late Night' as it proves how fantastic Lyn's voice still is; but I'd love to have all her solo singles and the 'Give Me Love' album on CD. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
I have met Lyn many times over the years at her various shows and she's always GENUINELY pleased to see and speak to her fans - a truly lovely lady. I think that's why they're so fiercely loyal to her. Plus the fact she's a bloody brilliant singer
From pop to rock to folk to ballad... First class vocalist
Lyn sang one of the best movie themes of all-time. John Barry/Don Black's "Sail The Summer Winds" from 'The Dove' (1974) is such a beautiful song - and Lyn Paul delivers it perfectly - timeless track from a great film
I would love to be able to get hold of her version of 'bring him home' - heard her sing it on T.V. A few years back. It made a nice change to hear a woman sing it. It brought a whole new meaning to the words as I think it was on a remembrance service for soldiers?
