Let me take you there - Betty Boo

Betty Boo was born as Alison Moira Clarkson on March 6, 1970. Originally nicknamed 'Betty Boop' for her similarity with the well-known cartoon character, she dropped the 'p' to avoid trademark disputes. In 1989 she rose to the scene with the Beatmasters, singing on their single 'Hey DJ - I Can't Dance (To That Music You're Playing)'. She followed this up with a solo single, 'Doin' the do', which reached number 7 in the UK singles chart. Her debut album sold pretty well too, reaching number 4 in the UK Albums chart.

In 1992 she released her second album 'Grrr! It's Betty Boo', with 'Let me take you there' as the first single. It reached number 12 in the UK, but it didn't chart in the Netherlands. Personally I thought this single was her first decent one, an upbeat summery tune whereas earlier work was annoying house-related trash. I bought the poster sleeved single while on holiday in London.
