Ironically that's the song she performed on an episode of "Hawaii 5-0" back in 1978..at the height of her fame. Jack Lord was a huge fan of hers.

Yes, gorgeous woman, nice voice, too. Saw her on one of those PBS shows a few years ago, and she still sounded very nice.

What's a 'PBS' show please? Good to know "the Doc" is a fan too. :D She also sang in Eric Clapton's band between around 1973-77 and it's her voice you can hear on "I shot the sheriff", "Knockin' on heaven's door" and "Hello old friend".

Public television in the US often runs shows of "blast from the past" artists, typically when they are trying to encourage subscriptions. Yes, I'm familiar with her backing "Slowhand", I've got a couple of those albums.

Yes, I may drop her a line. If the free itunes podcast download of an interview done with her in 2010 is anything to go by, she has a great personality and speaks for almost 2 hours about her past. Check it out.

Just found this amazing performance when the spotlight was given to Yvonne during an Eric Clapton show. This shows a different side to the 'disco diva' that everybody thinks she is / was.

I thought 1-900 numbers went out of style decades ago.
