We are very sad to hear of the death of Millie Small. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.

From The Guardian:
‘Recorded under the name Millie, My Boy Lollipop reached No 2 in the UK and US, with [Island Records founder Chris] Blackwell remembering: “It became a hit pretty much everywhere in the world … and it was just incredible how she handled it. She was such a sweet person. Very funny, great sense of humour. She was really special.” In a separate statement, Island Records heralded her as “a true original, a wonderful human being”.’
