Jewel 768 – My Baby He’s The Greatest

Jewel, Ronn & Paula were all Stan Lewis’ labels out of Shreveport.  Another Hines related 45 by Eddie Powers was released on Ronn so there was obviously some sort of relationship between Hines & Lewis in the mid 60s.  This 45 by the Starettes is a stunning female group deep soul ballad.  Note the White Cliff & Su-Ma publishing credits as well as Clarence Reid (Blowfly) getting writer credit.

I have no further information about the Starettes.  I believe this is their only 45, but knowing Hines they could have recorded under different names as well.
