UNI RECORDS 1969 LP73048
Everett began playing the piano and singing gospel music in church
at the age of nine. She moved to Chicago in 1957 to pursue a career
in secular music. She recorded for various small local Chicago soul labels,
before she was signed in 1963 by Calvin Carter, A&R musical director of
fast-growing independent label, Vee-Jay Records.
An initial single failed, but her second Vee-Jay release, a bluesy version
of "You're No Good" (written by Clint Ballard, Jr. and later a hit for Linda Ronstadt),
just missed the U.S. top 50. Her next single, the catchy "The Shoop Shoop Song
(It's in His Kiss)", was her biggest solo hit. The Rudy Clark song climbed to 6 on
the Billboard Hot 100 and made #1 on the Cashbox R&B chart for three weeks.
After an unsuccessful year with ABC, a move to Uni brought another major
success in 1969 with "There'll Come A Time", co-written by producer and
lead singer of The Chi-Lites, Eugene Record.
