Vicki Lawrence - Never gonna let you go 1979

Vicki Lawrence (born March 26, 1949) is an American actress, comedienne, and singer, who was frequently a game show panelist in the 1970s and 1980s. She is best known for her co-starring role on The Carol Burnett Show, alongside Carol Burnett, from 1967 to 1978, and as the sharp-tongued matriarch, Thelma Harper (the main character on Mama's Family, airing from 1983 to 1990, which was spun off from The Carol Burnett Show's The Family sketches). As a singer, Lawrence is most known for her #1 hit, "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia," a song written by her first husband Bobby Russell, which was released on Bell Records in November 1972. It sold over two million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in April 1973.
Since 1973 she recorded four albums. In 1979 she released album entitled "Newborn Woman" on Windmill Records. It was recorded at Larrabee Sound Studios.

Arranged and produced By Al Capps. I have chosen fantastic track entitled "Never gonna let you go". Composed by Norman Sallitt.
