Start of Fabulous Four Section

 

See main page for an introduction to The Fabulous Four and the Fantastic Five.
I did thorough research accumulating ads and clippings for that page, and along the way also grabbed those that featured just some of the group's members.
So, for example this page will definitely not feature every billing where Tiffany appeared, but I wanted to share what I found. These are by no means all of them.

Note: Tiffany was one of the last, certainly in Houston, to use "Mr" in front of her name, a custom began decades before by performers, partially to avoid police harassment...it was illegal to "disguise one's sex" on a public street. So performers had to do their costuming in the club, and then remove it. The Houston ordinance was finally overturned in 1980

 

1968

 

Above, earliest mention I found of Tiffany, or in this case, Tiffny, in the local press,
supposedly working at the Exile.
By the way Fertilizer, aka Billie McAllister, has her long long history
going back to the 1930s as a performer and a blues recording artist

1971

Below, Tiffany got her start much earlier than the other Fab Four
and often performed at the Red Room...this ad, from June 1971

 1972

Interesting that this article above from David, 1972, mentions Tiffany
starring with an earlier Fabulous Four, though they are not named

Below, a nice feature spread, with nudes, from David, June 1972
