When I was 15 or 16 years old, I had a friend called Hazel. She was descended from the Irish Ashkenazi Jewish community, and we were both volunteer youth leaders for Dror, a Socialist Zionist youth club.
Hazel was tall and willowy with no breasts to speak of. She had a vivacious 'bubbly' personality and curly brown 'jewfro' hair. She was also Bobby's Girl, Bobby being the most senior youth leader in the club at the time. We managed to be good friends in spite of the havoc that this situation wreaked on my adolescent thought processes.
Every week, we would meet at her parents house in Hendon to plan activities at the club for the following weekend. It was here that I would listen to what I believed to be Joan Armatrading's eponymous debut album, although it was actually her debut with A & M; she had released two earlier albums on a smaller label with less success.
