Biography

Margaret Marie Joseph, 1950, Pascagoula, Mississippi, USA. Having recorded unsuccessfully for the OKeh Records label, this excellent singer endured two further flops before an Aretha Franklin -influenced ballad, ‘Your Sweet Lovin’’, reached the R&B chart in 1970. The following year Joseph’s ambitious reworking of the Supremes’ ‘Stop! In The Name Of Love’ was trimmed down to six minutes to provide her with a second hit. Another interpretation, this time of Paul McCartney’s ‘My Love’, became Margie’s bestselling single in 1974. Further releases, including ‘Words (Are Impossible)’ (1974) and ‘What’s Come Over Me?’ (1975), a duet with the sweet-soul group Blue Magic, kept her name alive in the R&B chart.
