‘Most of the sides contained here were recorded in New Orleans or Los Angeles during the late 50s, providing her entire Modern recordings.’ Rocking and raunchy as ever.
Miss Peaches, 1954-9, rocking the hell out with Richard Berry, Lee Allen, Dave Bartholomew and co.
The 1970 LP — a neglected, heavy-soul classic — with eleven extras, unmissable deep soul like The Love Of My Man, funk like Tighten Up. Watch out, the title-track and come-again Weepers are pretty devastating.
The classic 1967 Cadet LP. Eight of the twelve bonus tracks are from FAME… orphaned monsters like Aretha’s Do Right Woman, I Worship The Ground You Walk On, Almost Persuaded.
Her third LP — after At Last! and Second Time Around — produced by the Chess Brothers, released on Argo; with the all-time classic Something’s Got A Hold On Me. This edition adds a couple of 45s.
