A long buried treasure trove of southern soul from deep deep down in the Muscle Shoals scene – gritty, beautiful, powerful work by Mary Gresham – an unjustly unknown singer who we'll put way up there with very best female funk & soul vocals of the 60s, 70s and beyond! Mary found modest success on a couple of late 60s singles with singing partner Chuck Cooper, recorded as Chuck & Mariann, for the A-Bet label at Fame
Studios – tunes that start out this collection – but the vast majority of this material is seeing an official release for the first time ever! She stayed busy over the years as a session backing vocalist, but she's a wonderful leader on these tunes – backed solidly by the horn accented Muscle Shoals brand of gritty southern soul – and it's unbelievable that this great stuff is only now hitting shelves. Loads of powerhouse soul, and the best kind of natural, truthful balladry – with Mary's vocals just killing it out front! 24 tracks in all: "Let's Walk Down The Street Together", "The Woman In Me", "Going Through The Changes", "Motivation", "Just Me And You", "Spend A Little Time (Loving The World)", "Get On Back On The Right Track", "Rainin' In My Heart", "Use Me", "I Want To Be Loved", "Promises Are Not To Be Broken", "We Are So In Love", "So Many Ways" and more!
