   Once upon a time, in a world far, far, removed from today, (about fifty years in round figures), a little lady walked onto the stage at Southampton Guildhall, followed by a tight spotlight as the rest of the group drifted on and arranged themselves in the semi-darkness behind her.  She stood there, in the narrow pool of light, saying nothing, perfectly still, and the noisy crowd went quiet.

   The group started playing and she took the mcrophone from the stand, gave a couple of wind-up swings on the cable and then hurled it high into the darkness above her.

   It came back down into her hand just in perfect time for her to throw herself into the vocals of Stretch.

   A truly electrifying start to the show.  Stage presence personified.  (I've wondered since how many times she must have dropped it before it became instinctive.)

   Sonja at her finest.
