Label: Hip-O
She may be best known for some of the most achingly romantic and oft-heartbroken songs in pop-music history, but early R&B's blonde bombshell was no sad sack. Fierce, soulful and unafraid to make her demands known, James broke out with "The Wallflower (Dance With Me Henry)," a response song to Hank Ballard's "Work With Me Annie" that told a man just what needed to be done to please her. She went on to make a name for herself with songs that gave voice to both a woman's emotional needs and sexual demands.
