Another New Orleans Before and After...
Audio File Deleted
This time we give the before and after treatment to Shirley Goodman. Shirley is most famous as half of the New Orleans R&B duo Shirley and Lee. Shirley's voice is high and squeaky and she is frequently off (way off) key. "I Feel Good" is a bouncy tune (circa 1956) in a similar bag as their big hit from the previous year: "Feel So Good." Disc two on the Vibration label, brings Shirley into the disco era ('74) under the tutelage of Sylvia Robinson (of Mickey and Sylvia fame, later founder of Sugar Hill Records.)
