Fave songs on the Cass '69 TV special......

Postby CassFanForLife » Tue Aug 10, 2010 2:07 pm

What are your favourite songs on the Cass "69 TV special ?
Mine are : Dancing in the Street
I can Dream Can I
Darling Companion
We Shall Be Released

I'm not too keen on the 3 backup singers she had for the special as for me, they were off key with Cass, she would of been better not to have had them at all. The other thing, in regards to the backup singers, the one woman looked familiar to me...the one with the long black hair ( maybe she sang in another girl group before becoming a backup singer or vice versa...she reminded me of one of the Supremes, or Martha and the Vendellas, or some Motown woman group of the day - anyone know who she was ? Or who the backup singers were for that matter ?

The group was The Blossoms. You may recognize Darlene Love and Fanita James, probably the most well-known members of the group. You can read more about them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Blossoms
