Loleatta once said that she made disco records because it paid her bills - and she did it rather well, in my opinion and that of her many dance fans. This particular CD captures the performer before she entered into discoland, and it really is a fantastic, must-have collection. Cry To Me is probably the better known of the tracks here, but you get an addtional 75 mins of equally blistering soul music, which makes the purchase of this CD nothing less than essential.
I would strongly recommend this CD as well her now fairly rare double CD, the Anthology, on Salsoul records; which as well as her excellent disco hits, also includes some of the most compelling soul music that you'll ever hear. The reviewer who referred to her disco material as trash is simply wrong; Loleatta was brilliant, whatever the material or genre. She put the soul into dance music, and when she opened her mouth she blew us away with her distinctive vocal power. No one could sing like Loleatta, and no one would dare try.
So, buy this and her Anthology and you will have all you need of this amazing woman, who lived each of her songs, she didn't just sing them. She has left us far too soon, but through her music, she lives on.
