White girls




Amazingly, Gail Harris was only about 15 when she so soulfully covered Etta James’s “All I Could Do Was Cry” at a dance at the Spanish Castle in Seattle. Down in Austin, Joyce Harris (no relation) was all of 21 when she screamed out her version of “I Got My Mojo Working;” hard to believe it wasn’t issued at the time. And Margaret Lewis was somewhere around 20 when she made this demo of her song “Reconsider Me” which later was a hit for both Narvel Felts and Johnny Adams.
