Evelyn “Champagne” King was all of 16 years old when she recorded an R&B classic called “Shame.”
It’s a song I still warmly associate with high school. Evidently, though, “Shame” has never stopped rocking the dance clubs.
Thirty years later, Evelyn “Champagne” King is still touring and making records. Her 2007 album “Open Book” will be reissued in a couple of weeks.
And after an 18-year absence from the Billboard charts, Ms. King is now on the Hot Dance Club Play chart with a fresh mix of “The Dance.” (To stream it on my Vox blog, click here.)
Cheers to Mark in England (a.k.a. fastflyer2007) for uploading this 12-inch of “Shame.”
