"A singer with great vitality and the ability to modify her style as musical trends changed, Etta remained a favourite of rhythm'n'blues followers from the early 1950's to the early 1970's. A classic."
"A seriously talented songwriter, LaSalle's first big hit came about in 1971 when her 'Trapped by a thing called love' reached nº 1 in the US R'n'B charts. She continued to enjoy hits through the 80's."
"Jackson, whose rich vocal texture is similar to one of her idols, Gladys Knight, made the pose of adulteress or of wronged wife popular, a style that later verged a little bit too much on self-parody."
"Ann Peebles has one of those rare voices and a style so distinctive that anyone who has heard her once never confuses her with anyone else.She's had a great influence on real soul music since the 70's"
"Despite her lack of hits, Brown is revered as one of the finest R'n'B vocalists of her time, capable of delivering soul, jazz, and pop with equal aplomb. Her version of Oh No Not My Baby is definitive"
"The exceptional lead voice of the Staple Singers began a simultaneous solo career when the group was signed to the Stax label in 1968. This compilation of that period is something you shouldn't miss."
"A southern soul rarity, this lady should have achieved more than she did. This is the re-issue of her one and only album, plus some bonus tracks. You should give it a try. It's definitely worthwhile."
"She had an incredible vocal power, range, and intensity that was perhaps too heavy for the record-buying masses. This 5000 copies limited edition contains all 3 of Ellison's Warner Bros. Lp's + bonus."
