Cindy & The Playmates

Cindy & the Playmates, led by Cindy Redd (later of the Voices) and backed by Wanda Cunningham and Manesbia Pierce, issued two singles on Jay Pee as teens. “Now That School Is Through” is a classic kid-concept song, just strong enough to boast post-adolescent appeal. The uncredited male during the fade-out captures the sentiment perfectly with “I think I’m just… just gonna lay around… take it easy.”
