And the answer is...............Maggie Bell.

Maggie was one of the best female vocalists to ever come out of Britain although she never made it over here. She was in a band called "Stone the Crows" who's first, and only I think, two albums were outstanding. Their guitar player was electrocuted on stage at one of their live performances and the band slowly split up after that. Maggie was a fellow Glasgow lass and Rod had a big crush on her growing up, I'm not sure if they had any kind of relationship but she did guest on a few of his early albums with the Faces.

She's sort of the female Rod Stewart. Very gravelly voice. Excellent albums if you like that era of music. I do :D

I'm only familiar with this album but I'd recommend any of the songs. Really great stuff.
