She toured with THE JOHNNY OTIS REVUE and THE JAMES BROWN REVUE in the fifties and early sixties, before signing to Chess records in 1962.
Her biggest tunes were probably "Soulful Dress" (1964) and the duets she did with childhood friend Etta James "In The Basement" and "Do I Make Myself Clear" (1966).

All of which, together with lots more goodies, can be found on the fantastic Ace/Kent compilation "Go Go Power - The Complete Chess singles 1961 - 1966". Released in the UK back in 2009.


Last Halloween treat going up tomorrow.
