Maxine Brown “Wrong Number, Right Girl” (1965, Unreleased. From Spotlight On Maxine Brown/Greatest Hits, 2000)
Happy 75th Birthday Maxine Brown.
I shouldn’t play favorites with fire, but Maxine Brown is totally my favorite Leo Leading Lady of Sixties Soul. Her uniquely tart and flexible voice with commanding power and remarkable tenderness caressed a number of songs from the dawn of Sixties soul and beyond. Although not a consistent chart topper, she placed a number of efforts, a number of her earlier ones she penned herself.
Along with her plethora of singles and smattering of LPs, she did manage to have a fair share of her efforts vaulted, especially during her run at Scepter Records from 1963 through 1967. This delightfully brazen romp has been a favorite of mine since it debuted nearly 15 years ago, and is a perfect celebration of this unheralded Queen of Soul.
