Do Your Duty ... LP Silver Fox/Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ...
Out Of Stock
Classic soul from BettyeLavette – with some her best recordings ever – a batch of tunes cut in Memphis with Lelan Rogers for the Silver Fox label in '69 & '70! The Betty heard here is a lot harder than on her earlier soul sides – recorded with a raw power that could easily blow away Aretha Franklin or any of her hard soul sisters – and done with a unique crossing of southern, funky, and country soul modes! Amazing! Titles include "My Train's A Coming", "Do Your Duty", "Love Made A Fool Of Me", "At The Mercy Of A Man", "Piece Of My Heart", "Easier To Say Than Do", "He Made A Woman Out Of Me", "We Got To Slip Around", "I'm In Love" and "Games People Play". LP, Vinyl record album
Classic club cuts that still sound wonderful all these many years later – tracks from the New York underground at the end of the 70s – and the sorts of grooves that were a big inspiration to the rise of house music too! The package brings together a stunning selection of cuts from the West End label – an imprint who was maybe second only to Salsoul for its importance to the New York clubs, but also one who maybe kept more of a commitment to the underground, both in the themes of its music and in the way it really let the DJs and mixers do their thing! Tracks on this second volume include "Work That Body (club version)" by Taana Gardner, "Is it All Over My Face (female version)" by Loose Joints, "Another Man (12" voc)" by Barbara Mason, "Give Your Body Up To The Music" by Billy Nichols, "Ride On The Rhythm (voc)" by Mahogany, "Girl I Like The Way You Move (voc)" by Stone, "Doin The Best That I Can (Walter Gibbons special mix)" by BettyeLavette, and "Just In Time (voc)" by Raw Silk.
