Sue Records owner/ prducer Juggy Murray recorded some truly great female vocalists; names such as Baby Washington, Tina Turner, Marjorie Black and also Sandra Phillips, who we will have the pleasure to listen to today.

Sandra was born in South Carolina and uprooted to New York City shortly before this record was cut. Juggy discovered her, singing around the city in clubs, and signed her to his subsidiary label Broadway Records for this DYNAMITE debut. This record has every element that I love; it's bold, brassy, and full of attitude. The song is superb, and the performance is top notch, driven not only by Sandra's excellent vocal but the clap-like drumming and some truly superb backing vocals that are some of the best I've ever heard.

Sandra Phillips became quite successful on Broadway, where she continues to work to this very day.

from 1966...
