by Administrator 29. April 2022 14:25

The weather is warming up so we are taking things south to Miami, FL with our first 45 on this post from female vocalist, Paulette Reaves. You are going to be really impressed by this one. Following Reaves are two more powerful 45s with last names also starting with “R” by Jimmy Robins and Ann Robinson. Don’t skip over this list!


Paulette Reaves: Queen of the Midnight Hours / It’s In Me

Label: Pip 1001. Released 1979.

Label Address: 495 SE 10th Ct, Hialeah, FL 33010.

A Side: Queen of the Midnight Hours

B Side: It’s In Me


“Queen of the Midnight Hours” from Paulette Reaves is hotter than anything I’ve heard in a long time! She really had something special going on during the 1970s and her backing band is worth checking out too. The mix on this 45 is remarkable, just listen to those drums and harmonies!

You are going to be blown away by the power behind Robins’ voice. We are convinced it could be heard from miles away without any amplification. It really is one of the most soothing sounds you’ll hear in a long time! Just wait for it to kick in on the side B ballad “For Goodness Sake”.
