Now, you'll be pleased to know, you can get a whole album which features for the most part the truly amazing vocal talents of Ms. Williams: her debut LP has finally been released in the States, where only the more discerning record buyers have noted her name hitherto. We started this album a couple of times but we wanted it to be right. Sure, I wish it could have happened sooner but then, I do believe everything happens in its own right time.
I'd go off sometimes and voice my grievances in not always the nicest way! But I tried not to get too upset — I just felt that with an album out I could go back over to Europe and work even Gladys Knight And The Pips - Imagination readily.
I realised from going there a couple of times that there's such an abundance of talent here in the States and that, in Europe, people are starved for what we re used to.
But I was blessed enough not to have to take another job — I've always made my living from music and I haven't had to do anything for the phone company to pay the rent! She chuckles at the memory.
Me and members of the cast would stop off at different clubs after the show and sit in. Well, eventually, my little francs were dwindling and I'd heard that the French audiences loved black entertainers so I went down to this club, Memphis Melody, got some of the guys from the musical to back me up and stayed there for a couple of months!
Since the duet was also on the Frenzy - Deviled Ham - I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night for the movie, "Less Than Zero", I actually got my first gold record before I had Were Gonna Make It - Alyson Williams - Raw album of my own!
Now that the aptly-titled "Raw" is finally out on the streets, Alyson says she's very happy with what's on the album. My only regret is that I did a duet with Chuck Stanley on the old Miracles' song. You know, when I grow up I want to be like Ella Fitzgerald! Don't forget I do have that jazz background and although I like to do high energy, dance grooves too, if I had a choice, I would probably just sit and do standards Were Gonna Make It - Alyson Williams - Raw day long.
One day, maybe I'll even do a whole jazz album. I always wanted to be inmusic and to be an entertainer so I can make a difference with in a lot of Imagine Toi - Francis Cabrel - Francis Cabrel areas.
