Amy Winehouse’s Last Recording

HollywoodNews.com: Amy Winehouse’s last recording date may have been a recent duet on the classic song “Body and Soul” with 84 year old Tony Bennett. The recording was made back on March 23rd at London’s Abbey Road stiods. It will be included on Tony’s duets album set for September release. Sources who worked on the session, which was filmed and photographed for posterity, said Winehouse came in, did her job, was no problem. They were amazed, in fact, about how well things went. This was just in the last two weeks. But now Winehouse is dead, found at her London home today. It’s a tragedy, of course.

There were also high hopes that Winehouse would finally settle down and record a follow up to her Grammy winning “Back to Black” album with the hit song, “Rehab.” She hadn’t released a new album since 2007. But source said that her producer. Mark Ronson, was hopeful that they’d be getting to work soon. Her legacy is in fact a very small output for a singer at 27 who was so popular. But Winehouse’s drug and alcohol problems just overwhelmed her. What a shame that 40 years after the death of her inspiration, Janis Joplin, not much has changed.

There’s only other recording I know of, by Amy. She did a track on Quincy Jones’s “Soul Bossa Nostra” album last year. It was a cover, ironically, of Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party and I’ll Cry If I Want To.” Amy, rest in peace.
