Taxi for Rufus !!

Chaka Khan in her early Rufus days! My Dad owned a taxi business once upon a time and one night his fare happened to be Chaka Khan & one member of Rufus heading back to a hotel in Stoke on Trent after playing a gig at The Heavy Steam Machine nightclub!! What a great band, what a wonderful voice. This is an early version of 'I'm Every Woman'
