When the 1964-1966 edition of the Ikettes -- Robbie Montgomery, Vanetta Fields, and Jessie Smith -- decided to leave Ike Turner's organization to record on their own, they used the name the Mirettes to record for Revue. The trio's cover of "In the Midnight Hour" just missed the Top 40 in 1968, and Revue released a similarly titled LP later that year. A few other choices for covers, "On the Good Ship Lollipop" and the Spencer Davis Group's "Keep on Running," failed to make the charts. Another LP followed, 1969's Whirlpool, for the UNI label.
