The Charmels

Profile:
Mid 60's soul female quartet from Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.

An evolution of The Dixiebelles (ex-The Tonettes), they recorded just four singles at Volt between 1966 - 1968 under the protection and guidance of Isaac Hayes. Baritone Eula Jean Rivers replaced Shirley Thomas, Mary Hunt was the soprano and Mildred Pratcher was the alto voice. Isaac Hayes decided to add a lead strong voice to the act and recruited Barbara McCoy, after hearing her at a Bar-Kays gig at The Hippodrome.
