That's sad. I had a bit of a crush on her when she was with Arrival. Never delved into Kokomo, but looking just now, I see Crim's Mel Collins was in the band for a while. Must dig deeper.

I recall seeing him, with a version of The Spencer Davis Group (minus Steve Winwood) many moons ago. A great concert, played to an appreciative home Brummie audience R.I.P

Overshadowed by Steve Winwood but Spencer was a major talent and a relatively rare pop success from Swansea, my home patch.

His excellent 2008 album, So Far, has a lot of songs chronicling his formative years in South Wales.
