Mason initially focused on songwriting when she entered the music industry in her teens. As a performer though, she had a major hit single with her third release in 1965, “Yes, I’m Ready” (number 5 pop, number 2 R&B). She had modest success throughout the rest of the decade on the small Arctic label, run by her manager, top Philadelphia disc-jockey, Jimmy Bishop. She reached the U.S. Billboard Hot 100Top 40 again in 1965 with “Sad, Sad Girl”, and “Oh How It Hurts” in 1967.
During the 1970s, Mason also continued to write some of her new material. Curtis Mayfield produced her on a cover version of Mayfield’s own “Give Me Your Love”, which restored her to the pop Top 40 and R&B Top Ten. Wiki
