Great compilation Fat Girl In Red and Stop The Wedding and Hold Me Tight are the highlights for me

Yes, STOP THE WEDDING (different to the Etta James song) is nice - I reckon "Paulette" is Paulette Williams, but would stand corrected.

I loved HOLD ME TIGHT since before I knew the music as Rocksteady, it was (and is) such a catchy tune.

It certainly sounds like her.

...and there weren't too many other "Paulettes" on the JA music scene back then Wink

I get confused with this. I've seen her credited as Paulette Morgan, and I get her muddled up with Patsy Todd. I'm not convinced it's Paulette Williams.

Paulette Morgan sprang into my mind as well, so here's Derrick & Paulette:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcAS5z-TusI

Here are the Sisters (Paulette and Gee Williams)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5a_LWS8hUTM

I couldn't find HOLD ON TIGHT on YT...

Here's Paulette Williams (MY ISLAND):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvJ3LrK0LEU

There was also Paulette Walker and from 1977, her version of the Felice Taylor tune (one tune I wish I had)

Paulette Morgan's early Ska efforts were high pitched, and sounded a lot like Patsy Todd....

This sounds like PM on "Stop the Wedding"....

Here's PW:

Using this tune as a comparison to "STW"...you can tell there are differences in vocal delivery....Williams has a more nasally sound...

In any case....I like all the singers! Cool

Of course, Paulette Williams was in the Ebony Sisters (with Nora Dean and also Cecile Campbell, I think), but it's less easy to pick her voice from their tunes.

Very true.....and, for me, all three lasses have distinctive vocal delivery....the fact that they were able to blend their voices together, to compliment one another so well...really flabbergasts me. Nora, and Cecile have voices, I wouldn't think, should pair well with voices that weren't similar to theirs....but they do, it works, and I like every Ebony Sisters tune I've come across.... Smile

I've always assumed that Paulette Williams wasn't in the Ebony Sisters, and that it was just one of Pama's normal mis-credits. I've not seen the Ebony Sisters credits on any of Alvin Ranglin's Paulette & Gee singles.

In later years, Claudette Miller was a member of the Ebony Sisters.

According to Chris Prete, Paulette was an Ebony Sister....but Pama did mis-credit often.... Confused
