Alma Cogan was the most popular, most successful female pop singer in the UK in the 1950s and early 1960s. She died of cancer in 1966 at age 34. This was her "big hit" at Number 4 on the UK charts in 1954, "Bell Bottom Blues," a cover of a Teresa Brewer song.

Never heard of this gal except for A2K (I think it was George who posted a topic about her, and this might even be a decade ago by now) -

Speaking of Teresa Brewer, she had a long, successful careet, and debuted with a number one hit, "Music, Music, "Music" in 1950. Here she does a "cowboy music" standard ("country and western" had not been invented then) written in 1932, and probably best known in the Jim Reeves/Patsy Cline duet. She recorded this in 1960.
