During some of RUDY LEWIS’ recording sessions for the Drifters they used a pretty slick female group for backup vocals. Dionne Warkwick, Doris Troy and Cissy Houston. That’s strong as ammonia! Check out Mexican Divorce.
Very few chitlin circuit acts out-rocked ROY “Good Rockin Tonight” BROWN. According to Preston Lauderbach “Roy sweated through 4 suits an hour. And as the cash rolled in, Roy bought a Caddy limo for the band, a Ford van for instruments, a station wagon for wives and girlfriends and a Fleetwood for himself.” Check out Roy’s Mighty Mighty Man, Cadillac Baby, Butcher Pete. “He’s hackin and whackin and smackin.”
