Mamie P. Galore – No right to cry – Sack 4361 M- dh £650

A windy city masterclass registered to Vee Pea, or Virginia P. Bland as she’s better known, and married to Milton Bland, the one and only Monk Higgins. Both were heavily linked to a host of Chicago labels, obviously the smaller short lived Special Agent, Sack and St. Lawrence outfits, but also the Chess, Checker, Cadet conglomerate. Vee Pea’s credentials appear on many of these releases either as a writer or publisher.

Having moved to Chicago, Higgins started recording for George Learnera at One-derful Records, and prior to St. Lawrence. Whilst at St. Lawrence, he hired his cousin Barbara (Acklin) Hackling as a secretary. Higgins recorded her “I’m not mad anymore” for his Special Agent label.

Mamie Galore also relocated to Chicago, signing with Dick Simon’s St. Lawrence label in 1965. Sadly, she passed away in Mississippi back in 2001, but not without leaving us a raft of outings on St. L, Thomas, Sack and Imperial. This 1967 release came on a label occupied with single releases by Bobbie Jean Bland, Tyrone Davis, Lewise Bethune and Don Gardner, all of whom are entrenched in the richness of Chicago’s musical tapestry. Whilst condition is conservative M-, the label is slightly off centre with a drill hole.
