Chicago soul vocalist Holly Maxwell started singing with the Tourjourettes while attending Parker High School; she studied classical music at Chicago Musical College in 1965 and never considered herself a soul singer. A deal with Constellation Records ended her schooling. The release of "Happiness Will Cost You One Thin Dime" b/w "It's Impossible" in June 1965 set her on a lifelong musical career; the recording did nothing regionally or nationally, but sold locally. Two months later, Constellation issued another local hit, the pretty "Only When You're Lonely" b/w "Let Him Go for Himself." She went with Star Records for at least two releases in 1966: the dancer "Philly Barracuda" and "Don't Say You Love Me Until You Do" b/w "Blueberry Hill."
