5.0 out of 5 stars A Funky Goldmine 26 May 2006
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
I Got To Try It One Time is just one of a string of brilliant albums that Millie recorded in the early 1970s. This album lacks the comedic interludes that make her later works so distinctive, but for down and dirty funk, this album is a goldmine.

The album kicks off with one of Millie's best ballads, the soulful "How Do You Feel The Morning After". After singing so movingly about being a wronged woman, Millie switches roles for "I Got To Try It One Time". In this song, Millie is a woman who just can't resist one of her man's friends. Millie has a knack for singing about love and all its associated dramas with a candour that would make most of today's divas blush with embarrassment. Another perfect example of this is "Get Your Love Right", in which Millie implores her man to satisfy her needs. Lil' Kim wishes she could be this fierce.

The album reaches an early high point with "Gospel Truth", one of Millie's greatest love songs. The choir backing is superb. This is followed by two large doses of Millie J attitude, "My Love Is So Fly" and "One Night Stand". Apparently, Millie had loving on her mind while recording this set. "A Letter Full Of Tears" is a nice change of pace, as Millie deals with getting dumped through the post. The next song "I Gotta Do Something About Myself" has a message that everyone can relate to. The final two songs end the album on a high. Millie dishes out some good advice on "Watch The One Who Brings You The News", a great song about predatory neighbours. The finale, "In The Wash" is Millie's guide to finding signs that your man is cheating by doing his laundry!

I Got To Try It One Time is irresistible to fans of early Millie Jackson. The album exemplifies Millie's unique ability to sing about topics that we can all relate to in one way or another. However, newcomers or fans of her more comedic material might want to start with "Feelin' Bitchy" or "A Moment's Pleasure".

4.0 out of 5 stars A link between soul and disco 20 Mar 2001
By Sasha - Published on
Format:Audio CD
On her first album,Millie Jackson had to fight against violins and unaproppriate,cheerful,Motown-like music backing.On the second ("It Hurts So Good") she found great producer (Brad Shapiro) who understand her and moved her further in funk teritory,perfectly suitable for her strong,passionate voice.On this,her third LP from 1974. Millie finally blossomed in a full throated soul singer who could cover Gladys Knight's "Letter Full Of Tears" and actually sound really great - althought its strange to hear this song without The Pips at the backing vocals,she uses her vocal similarity to Knight with a great advantage (and being somehow more earthy than Knight,Jackson is my favourite,sorry Gladys!). The first song ("How Do You Feel The Morning After") is really beautiful,but it's the last,funny and chunky "In The Wash" that points a direction Jackson would explore with a big artistic succes on her next album "Caught Up",the subject of anger,betrayal and defiance.And yes,having Cissy Houston for backing vocals helps as well...
