The queen of Memphis soul – caught "alone" after a some earlier hit recordings as part of a duo with Otis Redding – but now on her own in the years after Otis untimely early passing! The album has Thomas strongly returning to the sound of her first few albums on Stax – a bold, full-voiced sound that has her reemerging as one of the first ladies of soul at the end of the 60s, and coming across with a sound that's a fair bit more mature than her earliest singles. The tunes include a great batch of original Isaac Hayes & David Porter compositions – the strength of which really hold the album together, and make for a no-filler set all the way through! Titles include "Unchanging Love", "I'll Always Have Faith In You", "Lie To Keep Me From Crying", "Stop Thief", and "I Take It To My Baby". CD also features 5 more bons tracks – 4 of which are previously unissued – including "Same Thing", "Me & My Clock", "Your Love Indeed (alt)", "I Want To Know (take 2)", and "I Wonder About Love".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
