This show was 72nd in the global r&b chart.
I've mined the territory of checking in with women were doing in the recording studios through some random assortment of years during the 1960s.
1964 is an interesting year to ponder. Of course it's mostly remembered as the beginning of the British Invasion that swept many popular U.S. Pop stars off the Billboard Hot 100. What's often forgotten is it's the year that saw Mary Wells's, The Shangri-Las and The Dixie Cups scoring massive #1 hits, nevermind The Supremes scoring #3 hits in just 6 months of the year.
The largest number of women since World War II were staying in the workforce, and determining their life directions alongside the intersectional fight for Civil Rights.
It's no accident that there was still a plethora of female artists exercising their craft in 1964. So we pile into a brand new Mustang worth of tunes with veterans & upstarts of what was fresh, swinging and soulful from assorted women in the recording year in this huge transitional year in society.
