What’s wrong with this picture?

26 Mar

This is the classic “early” picture of The Crests. The problem is that when they first formed, there were FIVE members… the one missing from the picture is the lady who sang with the group. She sang on “My Juanita” recorded on the Joyce label, but whenThe Crests the band got signed to Coed records, she wasn’t allowed to continue… her mother insisting that she return to school and graduate instead. Mom probably knew best, because she was only 15 years old at the time. What makes this story more interesting is that her family obviously had a lot of singing talent. Her name was Patricia, but her younger brother carried the torch for her family and made everyone proud. We lost him recently, much too early…. little brother’s name? Luther Vandross…

Listen for “My Juanita” on the Honor Roll of Hits, heard 24/7 at TUNEDEX MEMORIES!
