Fontella Bass – Hold on this time

Sad news about Fontella Bass passing away this week at age 72. Another Soul great gone, there have been too many this year.

She was born in St.Louis in 1940 and came to prominence with her biggest hit, the spectacular Rescue Me which was released on Chess Records in 1965.
