The timing was unfortunate for two reasons. One was the emergence of the British Invasion which was making it difficult for all but the best North American performers to find room on the Billboard Pop Hot 100. The other was the decision by Billboard to suspend the R&B charts from late 1963, and that would last throughout 1964. But for her first release she was fortunate to be handed a great song, Selfish One, written by Carl Smith and Wilfred McKinley and when that was release on Chess 1903, it made it's way to a very respectable # 11 Hot 100 in September b/w Everything But Love, and kept from going higher only by things like The Four Seasons' Save It For Me, How Do You Do It by Gerry & The Pacemakers, Remember (Walkin' In The Sand) by The Shangri-Las , G.T.O. by Ronnie & The Daytonas, Because by The Dave Clark Five, Bread And Butter by The New1beats, The House Of The Rising Son by The Animals and Oh, Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison.
Unfortunately, the follow-up I've Got The Skill didn't quite grab the same attention and in November it petered ouit at # 89 on Chess 1913 b/w Change Your Ways, and before the year was out, Haste Makes Waste/Wasting Time on Chess 1915 was flopping.Read more ›
