HOLLY MAXWELL - PHILLY BARRACUDA


A scorcher; I don't know the moves to the Philly Barracuda per se, but this record makes me wanna shake it nonetheless!

Chicago's Holly Maxwell sang in groups starting in junior high school, and began her recording career in 1965 at age 20. She still performs to this day at blues clubs and festivals, in Chicago and Europe.

Holly went on to work with such legends as Curtis Mayfield and Barbara Acklin (who worked as her manager), and also as a fill in for Tina in the Ike & Tina Turner Revue(!)

from 1966...
