She released several cover versions of black soul records. Tell Him was a cover of the US hit for The Exciters which reached number ten in the UK charts.
Two main releases played at Manchester soul clubs were:-
When You Move You Lose (Decca 1966) Original by R & C Thomas – Stax
I Want You To Be My Baby (Decca 1968) Original by Ellie Greenwich.
When Roger Eagle left The ‘Wheel’ to DJ at the nearby Blue Note Club he took his record collection with him. That meant that his imported 45 of “When You Move You Lose” by Rufus & Carla (Thomas) went to the next club. So that’s when the new DJ had only the Keith Powell and Billie Davis version to play. (And it’s excellent).
