PP ARNOLD. American soul singer who achieved considerable success in the UK during the 1960s. She quit the Turner band in 1966 to remain in London and establish a solo career with Mick Jagger's encouragement. She noted the difference between how she had been treated in America and how she was received in England saying ; "A young black woman on her own in America in a white environment would not have been treated as well as I was in England". She enjoyed several major British hits on Immediate including songs written for her by Paul Korda who wrote "The Time Has Come." She also recorded songs written by Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane (from labelmates The Small Faces) who also backed her on several recordings and she also had a brief romantic liaison with Marriott in 1967. She toured with the Small Faces during 1967-68 (made several TV appearances with them) and featured as backing vocalist on two of the group's biggest hits ; "Itchycoo Park" and "Tin Soldier". Other credits in this period include her duet with Rod Stewart on the single "Come Home Baby" (produced by Mick Jagger) and Chris Farlowe's version of the Motown standard "Reach Out (I'll Be There)". In 1967, she scored several hits including a cover of the Cat Stevens song "The First Cut is The Deepest" (which reached No18 in the UK in May) / "Angel of The Morning" and the Marriott-Lane song "(If You Think You're) Groovy". After the collapse of Immediate in the late 1960s, she signed a production contract with the Robert Stigwood Organisation and released two singles on Polydor produced by Barry Gibb.
