Make 'Em Wait (1968)

Ikettes - Make 'Em Wait - Single

Make 'Em Wait features two wonderful tracks with lead vocals from The Ikettes. Both songs were later included on the album Cussin‘, Cryin’ & Carryin’ On in 1969. The Ikettes pictured on the cover are Ann Thomas, Paulette Parker (aka Maxayn Lewis), Pat Powdrill and Jean Brown, but the vocals are from previous Ikettes. It sounds like it might be P.P. Arnold singing lead here before she left in 1966. The title track was as well a single in 1970 - this time with lead vocals from Tina Turner and taken from the album River Deep, Mountain High.

Exciting rocker with an equally exciting vocal workout that should prove a discotheque smash.
