Journalist Legs Diamond is assigned by the leading African-American music rag to interview a '60s' girl group just before they're inducted in to the Soul Hall of Fame. Patricia Floyd never hits a false note in this ensemble performance. This audiocassette has more than thirty voices, and Floyd makes each distinct and faithful to the character. She especially delivers a measure of joy, sorrow, jealousy, and humor to the members of the girl group. Most of all, Floyd makes the listener one of the girlfriends from the 'hood, privy to the rock-and-roll world of quick fame and dark secrets.
