Audrey Hall – One Dance Won’t Do

Music Monday

This was one of may favourite Lovers’ Rock Reggae hits of the 80s. Honey-voiced Audrey Hall first came to my attention when she performed with legendary Jimmy Cliff on “Give the People What They Want”.

She went it alone with “One Dance Won’t Do” which she recorded in reply to Bere Hammond’s “What One Dance Can Do”

Following another song “Smile” that didn’t get very far, she dropped out of our lives. Never knew what happened to her – that voice was golden treasure.

Listening back now I can hear the popular whip-lashes that were also popular in New Romantic records of the time – giving it that real 80s feel. Here is she is in 1985 on Top Of The Pops.
