Mama Just Don't Understand

Evelyn 'Champagne' King : Shame

A janitor-ess who loved to sing while cleaning the offices at RCA Records, Evelyn 'Champagne' King scored one of the longest charting singles in UK history. "Shame" spent 23 weeks in the Top 75 without ever  climbing higher than UK#39. Both NME and Record Mirrors put the song on their Best Singles of the Year charts. 
"Shame" was also a Top 10 hit in the US. 
Sam Peake is the name of the musician who  plays those sax breaks. He also recorded with Parliament and Patti LaBelle.
