I’m not sure how I got into posting a bit of soul on a Monday but it has become a bit of habit which is increasingly hard to break to paraphrase a pish 70s soft rock group. I can’t think of a better way to start the week than with a little bit of soul.
Today’s track comes from an artist who began her professional career at the age of two when she and her six siblings formed a gospel group and she hasn’t stopped since, not only as an artist but a talent spotter when still in her teens, producer, label owner and mentor too. She released her first album when she was still only fourteen and her first gold disc with the single “Clean Up Woman” when she was seventeen! She is still going strong and has just released her eighteenth album.
Today’s track comes from 1972 and was released on the Alston label distributed by Atlantic at that time.
