Face '83: Evelyn "Champagne" King

There was a lot of this sort of thing around in 1983. There was a lot of this sort of thing on offer in The Face's list of best records.

It's not bad, it's just, when you look at what it is a very long list of records, and start wondering why nobody thought a spot of editing was called for, you can see this being struck through in front of your very eyes.

Still, here's Evelyn doing her thing on Soul Train. It's worth remembering that this song, Get Loose, was not set in space, or the future, or a nuclear facility. Pity Eve didn't remember that when picking her outfit.

We'll be rejoining the project tomorrow, with The Face's judgement scoring 11 against the judgement of history's 7.
