Esther Ofarim

This evening I was listening to the song Black Is The Colour Of My True Love's Hair by Jimmy Sommerville. I was looking on Youtube to post it here but it's not there as of yet but is on Last FM and is very much worth searching for. Instead I found a version of that song by Esther Ofarim. I had never heard of her before. She has such a beautiful voice.
Here is a clip from the German film 11 Uhr 20 (11 O Clock 20) where she sings the song. And here is her version of the equally beautiful She's Leaving Home.

Hey I love Esther Ofarim's voice too. I was introduced to her and Abi's album by a friend of mine. Her (and Abi's) version of Someday Soon is just amazing, and I found a video of them singing it on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQI6mqfmmoI
