Contrary to earlier reports that Corinne”s “Love EP” would drop on Valentine’s Day … the EP is available right here and now. Which I think is much better because now I’m certain I will make someone happy on Valentine’s Day.

Apart from the release date there is something else I have to correct. I kinda mentioned that Mrs Rae is the mistress of taking the sex out of everything and making it sound innocent. But after seeing the live performance video of “Que Sera Sera”  … I guess in her case  it’s  just a matter of reverse psychology. The original by Doris Day, however lovely, is basically a very cheesy track. In order to make this track her own Mrs Rae took a few pointers from Sly and the familiy Stone and added some rock to their blues …. now that is some rendition!!
