Thelma Jones has one of those voices that touch me deep inside -- so strong yet sweet and womanly. What a rare combination of vocal characteristics! I just love the slight vibrato and the softness in the higher ranges.
Although her better known titles "Salty Tears" and "I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love" are my favorites, today's pick plays quite often too in my house ...
"Stay A While With Me," (Thelma Jones, CBS 1978)
