An angel passes...




Little interesting information about Annabel Lamb other than the fact that she is an English singer-songwriter who will remain mainly in the musical history of the end of the XXth century for the big-caliber single "Riders on the storm", single released in 1983.


For that reason alone, we had to devote this article to her.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1982 ... the tone is trendy and so is the style, but that won't be enough to get young Annabel off the ground more than that. She will have to work again and again ..



1983 ... it started off rather well but the singer decided to test atypical musical styles to say the least and which above all will somewhat marginalize her. Pity...



1983 ... and it is not this kind of title which will allow her to attract the general public. Strange strategy and above all losing strategy for the moment ...



1983 ... it is a good old families cover which will allow her to save the furniture in extremis. To dare to attack the legendary title of Doors dating from 1971 is a bet to say the least suicidal. And yet, it is THIS title which will allow her to enter in an unexpected way in the musical history of the 80s. Incredible but true !



1984 ... she will never be able to repeat the feat accomplished on the previous title again, but she will all the same win with this title a semblance of a hit. Always better than nothing ...



1984 ... the rest will prove to be much more complicated to manage than expected. She will be out of the Charts as quickly as she entered it. Hard law of the trade ...



1986 ... there is a slight improvement from this year 1986 but the competition is light years ahead and she will never get back to the leading pack ...



1986 ... what a pity that she tooks so long to perfectly match the expectations of the general public. She had plenty of potential, but her early career on the sidelines of the system sounded the death knell for a career worthy of the name ...



1988 ... anyway, she continues to believe in it and advances at all costs. A desire to believe in it which commands respect but which will not be rewarded more than that ...



1989 ... a second part of the decade which sees her much more inspired than during the first. Even if it is far too late to hope for any miracle concerning a possible return to grace, we can only salute this desire to do well which gives this kind of title to the quality more than certain ...



1993 ... she will attempt the transition to the next decade but what did not work during the previous decade will not work either during this one. Nice try but this time it is indeed the end of the adventure ...
