Marie “Queenie” Lyons is a mystery girl, a Southern enigma. Like a kind of black Bobbie Gentry, after just one album (“SOUL FEVER”) Queenie vanished. Following its 1970 release, she disappeared off the soul map forever, like a roman candle floating off into the warm Southern night. Because of the prodigious wealth of talent in black America at the time, great albums with miniscule marketing budgets were often overlooked. “SOUL FEVER” was just a drop in an ocean of fabulous, funky R&B recordings released that year.
