Sixties soul sistas

I found this great 3" CD in a storage box in my basement. I thought it had been lost years ago. It's an oldies compilation with some great Chess songs by female soul singers of the ‘60s.

I love this music. I went onto YouTube and found some visual versions of these great songs, as well as some more music by other talented singers.

I remember this performance on Shindig by the late Mary Wells. I think every guy in the ‘60s who heard this Motown hit got a little tingle when she sang, “…there’s not a man today who could take me away from my guy,” in her breathy bedroom voice.
