Beautiful album from a stellar performer, featuring excellent songs and backing musicians. Bettye LaVette has seen an amazing comeback in the past 15 years or so, but if you haven't heard these sides, then you haven't heard the lady. Excellent.


Collection of material from the late 60's and early 70's originally released on the Silver Fox and SSS International labels. Includes two fine duets with Hank Ballard.
