I just finished watching the new documentary about Winehouse titled “Amy.”
What a heart-wrenching film!
This woman had an unbelievable raw talent that was wasted away by drugs, alcohol and bulimia.
I highly recommend this film:
After I watched it I was thinking of the time I was introduced to her music.
I was in my early 20s visiting London and I wandered into a music shop. I went directly to the staff said:
“I would like a cd by an artist who is big here and will make it big in America.”
The staff member immediately went to a display of Winehouse CDs and handed me this one:
I had no CD player to use while in London, so I had to wait until I returned home to listen to it. And boy it was just magnificent. I eventually donated it to my local library so other people could discover Winehouse for themselves.
I must admit, after watching the documentary, that the albums do her voice no justice! Some of the clips of her kind of informally singing, were so amazing. You don’t hear that sounds in the albums!
Cheers to the late Amy Winehouse!
