Paulette Parker joined The Ikettes in 1967, before meeting Andre Lewis and changing her name to Maxayn Lewis. Both of them would form the band Maxayn in 1970. Their self-titled debut came out in 1972, a superb album of soul and funk spiced up with a gospel vibe and also a distinctive rock sound. Along with some outstanding original songs, it includes two soulful and deep covers of The Rolling Stones' `Gimme Shelter' and `You Can't Always Get What You Want', which Maxayn completely makes her own with a fantastic vocal performance.
