A brief appearance on Billboard?s Bubbling Under
chart belies the fact that the Charmaines were
Cincinnati?s leading 1960s girl group. Formed by
Marian 'Gigi' Jackson, Dee Watkins and Irene
Vinegar, the group was awarded a contract with
Fraternity Records for winning a talent show. Gigi?s
sister Jerri sang on many of the group?s records but
was too young to perform in nightclubs. When Dee
left to get married, Jerri joined as a full-time
The Charmaines called it a day in the early 70s but
several of their records remained popular with
dancers on the UK?s Northern Soul scene. That
popularity received a boost in the mid-2000s when
their great version of Ike & Tina Turner?s ?I Idolize
You? was made available for the first time,
immediately finding favour with DJs and club-goers.
During their career the Charmaines had singles on
six different labels, but they never did have an
album released. We rectify that situation here with
this stylishly packaged vinyl-only 14-track collection
of their finest Fraternity recordings. Along with ?I
Idolize You?, highlights include ?What Kind Of Girl
(Do You Think I Am)?, ?On The Wagon? (as covered
by the Ronettes), their rip-roaring version of
?Rockin? Pneumonia? and three terrific examples of
their work as backing singers for label-mates Lonnie
Mack and Carl Edmondson.
