FRANKIE GEARING minipost
Frankie Gearing is one of the unheralded greats of soul. Maybe best known, if at all, for her years in the group Quiet Elegance (with Mildred Scott and Lois Reeves) in the seventies, she actually began recording in 1966 with The Steinways, releasing two singles. She then moved on to The Glories and recorder a number of records, before going on to Quiet Elegance. After the group disbanded she released a solo album which is much sought after today and seemingly impossible to find.
While the complete output of Quiet Elegance is available elsewhere, I thought I could gather a few of her other releases. Included in this post is two Steinways tracks, eight with The Glories and one track from her solo album. Enjoy, and please comment!
