Great deals on musical instruments
The dress soul singer Amy Winehouse wore for her second studio album Back To Black is to be sold to raise money for a charity set up in her name.

It is believed the dress will fetch around £20,000, which will go towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Set up in the months following her untimely death, the charity aims to help young people suffering from ill heath, disability or financial disadvantage.

The strapless spot-print dress, which was designed by Disaya Sorakraikitikul, is seen as an iconic piece.

Kerry Taylor, the auctioneer handling the sale said: "What makes this particular dress so special is that it is an emblematic reminder of the magic voice and sublime talent of Amy Winehouse, a sound that resonates with an entire generation."

When Back To Black was released in 2006 it catapulted Winehouse to international fame, bagging the musician five Grammy Awards.

It contains songs like the eponymous Back To Black, Love Is a Losing Game, You Know I'm No Good and Rehab.

Writing at the time, the Daily Telegraph's Helen Brown, described it as "wall-of-sound bombast with brazenly catchy hooks and smart, modern, soul-scouring lyrics".
