Unofficial web-site : To some pop statisticians, she is considered a one hit wonder, but to a sizable following of rock and soul fans, she is simply a wonder – a woman with the sadly sweet voice of a fallen angel, who rose from poverty to become the Soul Queen of New Orleans (Dawn Eden)

@last.fm : Now, finally undergoing a late career renaissance on the Rounder label, much of her most enduring work was produced in the early 1960’s by Allen Toussaint for Minit Records, and she also recorded for other labels including Imperial, Chess, and Atlantic, eventually retiring for a period before reviving her career in earnest in the late 1980’s.
