Once again, Marc, you have rescued a genuine talent from obscurity with your wonderful interview. Helen Shapiro is a classic example of a major, unique talent whose career was destroyed by a group of idiot producers and managers. Her career is a great example of a horrible botch job. A pity she couldn't have connected with a major label here, and a producer who could have shaped her career and gotten her on some of the major variety shows of the time
. What has she been doing lately, if anything?

There are many more fine YouTube clips of Shapiro, who was a revelation to me. Many thanks, Marc.
