A picture of a tour that Jim Page took the press and Patti on. Patti is standing too close to the machinery then Jim Page is next to her and in black is Rema (one of the singing Fowler Sisters). Rema was hired by Jack Rael to sing harmonies with Patti back stage on all of her early shows. Since Patti was the first person to use overdubbing and all of her big hits used this technique, they had Rema supply the harmonies backstage. They originally used acetate discs or records played off stage that were recorded without the lead vocals, just the harmonies but there were too many times that the records would stick or someone would hit them and ruin the song so Jack asked Rema to join the shows. Patti said it was also to keep an eye on her so she wouldn't stay out too late or spend to much money.
