The Ravishing Beauties

The Ravishing Beauties were Virginia Astely's band before she went solo. They toured with The Teardrop Explodes and recorded a few demos and did a couple of sessions. Here is my favorite of their demos. I love the tiny little Roland drum sounds that go throughout but are completely overshadowed on the choruses by the huge timpani drums.

  2. From one big Virgina A fan to another,

    I've been a big fan since stumbling upon Hope In A Darkened Heart a few years ago, just happened to be searching for some videos of her performing yesterday when I found this post. Keep it up! Where did you find these photos of the ravishing beauties? So good!
