Biography assessment rating comment[edit]

The article may be improved by following the WikiProject Biography 11 easy steps to producing at least a B article. -- Edofedinburgh 03:57, 25 March 2007 (UTC)


In his autobio and in an "Advocate" interview around the release of his book, Boy George stated that Miss Terry is a lesbian. May she be included under lesbian musicians or LGBT people from the United Kingdom? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:26, 6 September, 2006 (UTC)

Helen Terry's Album" =[edit]

I want to know the list of albums including their song title contents Helen have had recorded. ANyone, Helen? Please show the links too. THanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 04:48, 21 December 2006 (UTC).

Walk on the wild Side?[edit]

I am told Helen provided the backing vocal 'doo-doo-doo' parts on Lou Reed's 'Walk on the Wild Side'. Can anyone confirm this? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 14:16, 27 January 2007 (UTC). Highly improbable, given that Helen would have been an Essex schoolgirl at the time Plutonium27 (talk) 08:12, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Excessive discography detail[edit]

There's way too much information on individual recordings here (catalogue numbers, publishers etc.), and it unbalances the entry something shocking. I'm going to edit/trim it in a day or so if someone doesn't come up with a good justification. Gusworld (talk) 04:26, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

As no one responded, I've gone ahead and made the changes. I also copy-edited to take out some of the more fannish stuff, changed the references into proper citations, and rewrote the first paragraph to be closer to regular lead style. The discography might benefit from being converted into a table at some point (which might also allow the songwriter details to be added in). The article could also use actual cited chart positions; I'll add this when I get back to my reference library if someone else can't do it first. Gusworld (talk) 09:27, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Also: Table or not, the singles would probably work better being grouped by title rather than format (with all the "Love Lies Lost" releases together, for example), but there's a limit to how much could be done in one edit. Gusworld (talk) 09:28, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Most recent edit[edit]

Ratings for 2008 Brits were a good addition; I've added a source for them and moved them into the media career section (per Wikipedia style where the lead is supposed to be a summary overview of the main article). Took out the ratings contrast to 2007 for the moment; though factual, this seemed designed to highlight Terry's achivements, but didn't mention that she also produced the previous broadcast! Could probably be restored in a more neutral fashion.

Also, while I support not including the unsourced claim of a relationship to Ellen Terry (having removed it earlier), we can't include a sentence in the links saying it's not true without sourcing that claim. For now, I've made it a comment in the source, so if anyone edits it and adds it in they might get warned off. Also tidied up some present/past tense problems in the opener. Gusworld (talk) 01:20, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Side thought -- a really detailed discussion of ratings probably belongs in the article on the Brits, rather than here. Gusworld (talk) 01:22, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
