a brief history
Scott was born Sundray Tucker and raised in
North Philadelphia. Having Lynda Laurence of The Supremes
as her sister and Tammi Terrell and Bunny Sigler as cousins,
Cindy was destined to sing, and by the age of 14 she was doing
just that with sister Lynda and later with the Ordettes, which
included Patti LaBelle.
Tucker became Cindy Scott after
a deal went sour with Don Robey and she was forced to change
her name and record incognito. She soon began collaborating
with Leon Huff and in 1967 had two releases on Veep Records
for producers John Madara and Dave
-- "I Love You Baby" and Otis Redding's "I've
Been Loving You Too Long."
