Jo-Ann Kelly - 1969 - Jo-Ann Kelly

Jo Ann Kelly was an English blues singer and guitarist. Kelly was born in Streatham, South London, and with her brother, Dave Kelly, became blues fans in their teens. Few women were singing or playing the blues during the 1960s, let alone with her skill or understanding of early blues styles. Kelly had a voice far bigger than her slight frame would suggest; with a rich, deep, tonal quality that could easily have come from Dinah Washington or Sister Rosetta Tharpe. After establishing a musical partnership with the British blues musician Tony McPhee, Kelly appeared on two McPhee compiled albums for Liberty Records, Me And The Devil (1968) and I Asked for Water, She Gave Me Gasoline (1969). At the end of the 1960s, with an album on a major record label in the United States, it seemed that she might be spirited away there and moulded into another Janis Joplin. Both Johnny Winter and Canned Heat tried to recruit Kelly into their ranks. However, her allegiance was to the United Kingdom and the nightclub scene, although, the 1970s and 1980s would fail to support her financially and so she took to the European circuit, latterly with the guitarist Pete Emery or in bands. Indeed, in the early 1980s, she was a member of the Terry Smith Blues Band.
