Chart positions

This upload was 72nd in the #r&b chart and 94th in the #jazz chart.

The further we inch away from the Mid Century Modern era in time, the more we try to unravel the gems of that era as well. 1961 was a pretty big breakthrough year in terms of Pop Music for women, and women of color in particular. As we close out this year, we trace who and what were women of classic soul spooling up for you during the first year of Camelot and Classic Continentals.

For a move diverse portrait I gathered a plethora of women for just over an hour of enjoyment, reflection and relief from the onslaught of Christmas tunes.

Love the Barbara McNair song!

It was a hard choice between her version and Ernestine Anderson's from the same year tho. I do prefer the slower pace Barbara takes with her version.

Sensational collection. Big thanks from a child of '61.
