Photobucket PT 2 - Ludi Montgomery_Author and sister of Tammi Terrell. At the age of 15, Tammi was discovered by producer Luther Dixon and signed to Specter/Wand Records. Credited as Tammy Montgomery, she made her debut with "If I You See Bill." She encored in the spring of '62 on Wand with "Voice of Experience," but stardom was still a ways down the road. James Brown signed her to his Try Me label and issued "I Cried" in 1963 and she toured with his live revue. "If I Would Marry You" appeared on Checker a year later, during which time she also studied Pre-Med at the University of Pennsylvania. Reports vary as to how Tammi joined the Motown roster. One account has it that either Motown producer Harvey Fuqua or Motown president Berry Gordy, Jr.,caught her act when she was singing duets at the 20 Grand Club with Windy City soul crooner Jerry "Iceman" Butler in 1965. A similar featured spot with Chuck Jackson's troupe may have also played a role. Her Motown label debut was "I Can't Believe You Love Me," with "Come On and See Me" and "This Old Heart of Mine" following.
