Doris Troy's second Apple single was a real Beatle affair. The A side a traditional song was co-arranged by George Harrison along with Doris, while the B-side is a cover version of the Beatles song. There must be many hours of unreleased material by Apple recording artists who had one or more of the Beatles playing on their tracks. This single was produced by Doris and was issued in a picture sleeve.


Wikipedia

Doris Troy (January 6, 1937 – February 16, 2004) was an American R&B singer, known to her many fans as "Mama Soul".

She was born as Doris Higginson in The Bronx, the daughter of a Barbadian Pentecostal minister. Her parents disapproved of "subversive" forms of music like rhythm & blues, so she cut her teeth singing in her father's choir. She was working as an usherette at the Apollo where she was discovered by James Brown.

Troy worked with Solomon Burke, The Drifters, Cissy Houston, and Dionne Warwick, before she co-wrote and recorded "Just One Look", which hit #10 in the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1963. The song has been covered by The Hollies, Linda Ronstadt, Bryan Ferry, Anne Murray, Klaus Nomi, and Harry Nilsson. Her only foray into the UK Singles Chart, "Whatcha Gonna Do About It", peaked at #37 in December 1964.

As her solo career peaked, she did back-up for the Rolling Stones, Humble Pie, Kevin Ayers, Pink Floyd (on their album The Dark Side of the Moon), George Harrison, Johnny Hallyday, Dusty Springfield, Nick Drake, Junior Campbell and Carly Simon.

She was signed by The Beatles to their Apple Records label in 1969, and released an album co-produced by Troy and George Harrison.

Troy worked in the UK throughout the 1970s, appearing at Ronnie Scott's Club and recording a live album, The Rainbow Testament. Her People Records album, Stretching Out, was not a big seller.

Mama, I Want To Sing is a stage musical based on her life, and was co-written with her sister, Vy, a popular New York radio personality. It ran for 1,500 performances at the Heckscher Theatre in Harlem. Troy played her own mother, Geraldine. Chaka Khan played her aunt in the London production, as did Deniece Williams. The musical has been reinterpreted as a motion picture, released in 2009. The film's cast included Ciara, Patti Labelle and Hill Harper.

Troy died from emphysema at her home in Las Vegas, Nevada, aged 67.
