Ann Cole !



Tadaaaaaaaa !
Summer's gone godammit !

Well, back to work.
And I want my scalps.

Ann Cole was a genuinely great soul singer who had the misfortune to be too far ahead of her time. She was daring enough to record "Got My Mojo Working," which she'd performed on-stage (which was how Muddy Waters found the song) in 1956.
Cole also cut records on the Timely, Baton, and Sir labels, and in 1956 she was voted the Most Promising Female R&B Vocals. Cole cut many records, but only ever had one pop-chart hit, in 1962 with "Don't Stop the Wedding" on Roulette.
The A-side was a sort of answer record to the Etta James song "Stop the Wedding"; ironically, "Don't Stop the Wedding"'s B-side, "Have Fun," was also her last R&B charting song.
Enjoy !

Ann Cole :
* Each Day *
* Brand New Hearts *
* Got My Mojo Working *
* Don't Stop The Wedding *
