I had a listen to the Huey Lewis rendition of Respect Yourself and was so taken with the other singers voice I had to know who it was. I actually took the time to find out the identity of the woman that's how much I enjoyed her voice. It's none other than Dorothy Morrison and what a voice..what a range. Lovin' it.. She has pipes !
