Shirley and Company were one of many one-hit wonders that had their moment in the sun during the nascent days of disco. Comprised of Shirley Goodman and Jesus Alvarez, "Shame Shame Shame" was one of 1974's biggest surprises, a bouncy track with Alvarez's passionate vocals adding a remarkable level of energy. The song still garners radio play.

Goodman had prior experience in the music industry. Partnered with Leonard Lee, she was one of New Orleans' first rock stars. "I'm Gone," recorded in 1952, was the first of Shirley & Lee's hits. Their career peaked with the standard "Let the Good Times Roll."

There was no further recordings for the Company after "Shame" fell off the charts, and she eventually focused on family life. She died on July 5, 2005.

Shirley and Company's Deepest Groove

Shame Shame Shame (Vibration, 1974)
I wonder if any hip DJs were spinning this with "Impeach the President" for a politically-charged  throwdown?
