Do you mean singers from groups that don't get as much attention in the mainstream for their singing ability as they should do?

If yes, Glen Goins

I think Jarvis Cocker has a wonderful voice. A singer from years ago that I thought had a great bass voice was Howard Keel.

I saw Big Country at a New Years gig in Edinburgh gardens a few years back. I think Edwin Collins was on the bill as well, now there was a guy with a nice baritone voice.

Heard it on the Grapevine is a top drawer track. 'It Came Out Of The Sky' is another.

Please guys PLEASE, it's "Heard it THROUGH the Grapevine." I've been performing that song for years and I wince every time there's another preposition appearing in the title.

Paul Carrick .....who still performs solo and with several groups. A favourite with Eric Clapton and the voice of the best tracks of Mike and the Mechanics.

Gary Brooker ...... Whiter Shade of Pale..... Although I knew him when front man for The Paramounts. Listen to their take on Curtis Mayfield's" I'm the one who loves you"

Here are a couple more, Maggie Bell and the young lady who sang with Meat Loaf on a very long track about driving a car? Or doing something in one. What was her name?
