Episode 7: The Singles of The Tammys

During the 1960s, in which girl groups were at their height, there was nothing quite like “Egyptian Shumba” by the Pennsylvania-based group The Tammys. In Episode 7 of In Loving Recollection, sisters Gretchen and Cathy Owens tell the story of the three singles they recorded with their classmate Linda Jones for United Artists Records. Reminiscing about their relationship with friend and mentor Lou Christie, the sisters also speak of their time in the recording studio and how their shrieking and howling caused the musicians to stop playing.
