Thunder & Lightning

La Crosse, WI, United States / Eagle 102.7
Thunder & Lightning

Actually, it’s today’s forgotten oldie I’m talking about although with our weather lately, this song is appropriate.  Thunder and Lightning was a top twenty hit for a young lady from Racine, Wisconsin, in 1972.  Her name was Chi Coltrane, and although in the USA she’s officially a one-hit wonder, her follow-up records did extremely well in Europe… so much so that she moved to Europe in 1977.  Today she still performs, mostly in the United States where she has a solid following among blues lovers.  Her big hit is just another forgotten oldie today, kind of sad considering her talent as a singer and piano player, and her unmistakable beauty.
