Product Description

Acclaim has been widespread. The Sunday Times said album track You Never Come Closer was: Hendrix backing Björk . The track was then sampled by Madlib, since when more tracks became sought after by hip hop fans. It was also compiled on EMI s The Best Smooth Jazz...Ever album. In its listing of Forty Essential Funk Albums , www.blaxploitation.com placed Did You Give The World Some Love Today, Baby alongside James Brown, Manu Dibango, Earth Wind & Fire and The Meters. She was a pioneer, a female bass player and singer in otherwise allmale bands. This definitive, expanded edition tells the full story for the first time and includes all the singles Doris released in the run up to the album's release, solo and as a member of the bands Plums and Dandys.

Wow! What a corker! This 1970 gem doesn't have a bad moment on it. Sweden's Doris has a voice to equal the likes of Lulu, Ann Peebles and dare I say it...Dusty. Obviously she's not in the same class as Ms. Springfield (who is?) but Doris has a thoroughly enchanting, earthy voice which is done ample justice by a bunch of terrific tunes mostly penned by Swedish Jazz wizard and all-round talent Berndt Egerbladh. There's even a cover of Nilsson's "Bath"! One of my favourite discoveries of 2008.

A rare release of a European artist from the excellent Mr. Bongo label, Doris' 'Did You Give the World Some Love Today, Baby?' was released on EMI/Odeon in 1970, and included a host of talented session musicians, and quite fittingly for a Swedish artist, closed out with a cover of Harry Nillson's 'Bath'. 'Did You Give...' is an interesting album, to say the least. Though the most common comparison is Dusty Springfield, Doris' style veers between the almost hard-rock growl of the title track, the irritatingly cutesy vocals of the preposterously bad 'Won't You Take Me to the Theatre', and the catchy, soulful voice she gives us for 'Don't' (a song which reaches almost Aretha Franklin levels of funky). This is also a diverse album, both for better and for worse. Ill-fitting folky guitar strumming appears on the odd 'Waiting at the Station', as Doris complains of hard labour for a crime she hasn't committed, yet elsewhere, the harmonies are top rate, such as with the gorgeous, restrained, lilting piano which holds up the gentle, yearning 'Grey Rain of Sweden'.

It's hard to know how to rate the album, because it is very hit and miss. Equally, whilst the virtuoso music of Doris' backing band shines through at times, elsewhere the music sounds dated and one or two moments on the album are really quite naff. If female soul singers are your thing, then Doris' 'Did You Give...' will probably provide you with a record that intrigues, and delivers, with a handful of top-quality songs. But for the casual listener, there is too much in the way of twee melodies, oddly childlike vocals and slightly misplaced jazzy riffing for this to be the top quality, soul-filled album that tracks like 'Don't', and the catchy, cabaret-esque 'Bath' would suggest.
