A song to start your week : Merry Clayton – Gimme Shelter

I’m sure everyone here is familiar with The Rolling Stones ‘Gimme Shelter’, a fabulous song of which the high point is the hair raising backing vocals from Merry Clayton. It’s less well known that she her released her own solo version of the song, very different but equally thrilling to the Stones version. Well worth a listen for any soul lovers out there.
