Christine Quaite

Christine was born in Leeds and after being placed second in a Manchester talent contest, she was offered a contract by Oriole Records, releasing her first record, Oh My, in 1962.

Two years later she achieved a minor hit in America with Tell Me Mama reaching #89 on the Hot 100.

Unfortunately, Oriole went bankrupt in 1965 and Quaite signed with manager Bunny Lewis who negotiated a deal with the New York-based Laurie Records and recorded the Bobby Goldsboro song, If You’ve Got A Heart but the company decided not to release it (although it did find a home in the UK via EMI’s Stateside label that mainly issued American artists).

Christine recorded one further single, the Bacharach and David composition, Long After Tonight Is All Over before calling it a day by getting married and starting a family.
