All kittens are mischievous, but Ting “the cat grenade” was real trouble. She was also smart, endearing, and the soul of the Warren family.

Bruce Forsyth  Lucretia Mac Evil
(Not my text; off of YouTube) -
Yes, you're reading this correctly. An unexpected cover off the 1973 LP The Musical Side of Bruce. There's plenty of horns and a great Hawkshaw style Hammond solo at 1:45 by Don Hunt. Bruce's voice is good in parts, terrible in others but it was worth putting it up for the Hammond. 

Billie Holiday  God Bless the Child

 Tom Jones   I'm Your Vehicle

From "This is Tom Jones" broadcast November 17 , 1970
