Margaret Lewis
Reconsider Me CD

Margaret Lewis was a superb talent who could rock like Wanda Jackson, be as wistful as Patti Page and then become as achingly soulful as Patsy Cline.
This 28 track gathers the original RAM singles by this Shreveport singer and songwriter, many featuring the bluesy guitar of Grace Tennessee.
Born in Texas, she grew up singing in the Baptist church choir and listening to rockabilly and rhythm & blues.
In high school she formed a band, the Thunderbolts, and they took second place in a talent show in Lubbock in 1957.
After some guest appearances on the Louisiana Hayride radio program, she joined the cast in 1958.
In Shreveport where the show was based she met local guitarist and songwriter Mira Ann Smith who had her own record label, Ram Records.
Through Smith, Lewis and her sister Rose went on to tour with local Dale Hawkins and sang backup vocals on some of his Chess Records recordings.
Lewis continued to record on Smith's Ram Records for several years, until the label closed in the early 1960s, after which Lewis and Smith then to concentrate on songwriting.
As a songwriters they had several major successes, perhaps the best known being Reconsider Me, which has charted for at least four different artists including Johnny Adams and Narvel Felts.
