In 1987, Jeannie Taylore, an actress (most notably on the enormously popular show EastEnders) and singer, went into a studio in London for the all day recording session that became ROUGH DIAMOND. The backing musicians, led by Big band veteran Billy Amstell, laid down the music for songs ranging from Jazz (What A Difference A Day Makes) to Country (By The Time I Get To Phoenix), Pub favorites (I Wanna Go To Heaven & Let Me Call You Sweetheart) to Gospel (The Old Rugged Cross) and the inspirational closer You'll Never Walk Alone.
Rough Diamond is happy, jaunty, boisterous and soulful- Milton J. Kramer
