THE TEEN QUEENS - THERE'S NOTHING ON MY MIND Pt 1 & 2
Made up of sisters Betty & Rose Collins, The Teen Queens cut a number of hits in LA starting around 1955, and by the time of this record Betty was 20 and Rose was 19. Written by the great west coast blues/ r&B legend Big Jay McNeely, this outright funky sides show the sisters had come a long way since "Eddie My Love" from just a few years prior. This was their third to last release as the Teen Queens, but they cut a few more sides as Betty & Rose.
Sadly, both ladies succumbed to drug addiction and passed away many years ago.
