Bettye LavetteDo Your Duty ... LP
Silver Fox/Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $23.99 24.98
Classic soul from Bettye Lavette – 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

Bettye LavetteI've Got My Own Hell To Raise ... CD
Anti, 2005. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A surprisingly wonderful set from deep soul diva Bettye Lavette – a record that's actually as good as most of her older work, and that's something we didn't expect! We'll be honest in saying that we're always pretty darn suspicious of comeback albums by older soul singers – and usually, we find them lacking in spirit compared to the older work, thanks to bad production and song selection choices. Here, though, Lavette actually seems to sound even stronger than before – stepping out on some numbers with especially raw backings that have guitar ripping alongside her heartfelt vocals – in a groove that almost recalls 70s work by Betty Davis. Other tunes are sparer, or mellower – but Bettye's vocals burn strongly throughout – and the album's easily set a new standard for this sort of session! Titles include "Down To Zero", "The High Road", "On The Surface", "Little Sparrow", "Just Say So", "How Am I Different", and "Only Time Will Tell Me". CD

Willie JonesFire In My Soul ... CD
Shout (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
New recordings from Willie Jones – a singer who's been working in soul music since the late 50s – first as a key member of The Royal Jokers, and more recently as a solo artist on his own! Willie got his start in Detroit, but the style here is more deep soul overall – done with a southern tinge that recalls some of the recent revival work by Bettye LaVette or Mavis Staples. Bettye actually makes a guest appearance here – singing with Willie on the track "Without Redemption" – and the set also features guest work from Steve Cropper and Black Francis – on titles that include "Fire In My Soul", "Don't Mean A Damn", "Rollin & Smokin", "Troubled World", "In The Wind", "Reasons", and "The Road From Rags To Riches".
