Ever since this brilliant album was first released on vinyl (1971) it has remained a favourite of mine, and I'm so pleased its now available on CD. Produced by Lou Adler, and featuring a stellar line-up of musicians including Billy Preston, Jo Sample, Carole King, Clarence McDonald, David T Walker, Wilton Felder, etc, the album assembles a terrific collection of great songs to showcase Merry Claytons powerful but soulful vocals. Having provided backing vocals for iconic artists like Ray Charles (she was a Raelette), Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Joe Cocker, Neil Young, Tom Jones, etc, and duetting with Mick Jagger on `Gimme Shelter', she deserved to become a global star. Great songs, great musicians, sensational vocals!

This album is proof positive that Merry Clayton had the strength and style that deserved a distinguished solo career. That this never happened is a great shame and that story is told in the movie 'Twenty Feet From Stardom'. All the material on this album is solid soul with a fine band and arrangements. The standout track is Merry's cover of Neil Young's 'Southern Man' but she graces everything she touches. This album sits well alongside anything by Aretha or Otis and is always near my player. Love it.

this is the second reissue from Repertoire of Merry Clayton's solo 1970 records. it's not quite different from "gimme shelter": some covers, some originals, very good musicians, a great voice. not a masterpiece, but a very funny record (and not so expensive...)

Searing 1971 soul reissued 2 April 2010
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Merry Clayton's most listened-to vocal performance remains her soul work with Mick Jagger on the Rolling Stones' 1969 "Gimme Shelter." The following year she recorded her first solo album, on Lou Adler's Ode label, and in 1971 hit a high-point with this self-titled release. Recorded in Los Angeles with arrangements by Jerry Peters and others, the album opens with a searing take on Neil Young's "Southern Man" before settling into lighter grooves of soul and balladry. The loving "After All This Time" cracked the Top 100, and Peters' "Love or Let Me Be Lonely" (originally a hit for the Friends of Distinction) was turned into a fine down-tempo number. Clayton puts a soulful spin on Leon Russell ("A Song For You"), James Taylor (whose original of "Steamroller" was more folk-blues than Clayton's soulful approach), Bill Withers ("Grandma's Hands"), and the gospel "Sho'nuff" is a show-stopper. Three of Clayton's Ode albums (Gimme Shelter, Merry Clayton and Keep Your Eye On Sparrow) were reissued as expensive import CDs, and are now reissued as affordable digital downloads [1 2 3]. Of the three, this is the one to start with. [©2010 hyperbolium dot com]

HIGHLY UNDERATED SINGER IN THE UK 18 Jun. 2010
By Norman E. Harrington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I remember having this album when it came out as an LP. I thought it was great then and now acquiring it at a premium price and having to pay customs duty on it I was ready for a disappointment. Well let me tell you if albums were put out by some of our modern divas that had as much quality, strong songs, singing and great production values we would be in a golden age right now. We are sadly not. This album is an exemplar of a time, not too long ago, when albums that didn't cause great waves in the UK were still superb.
Buy this album, you will be made over.

It's Al About The Voice 24 July 2013
By John Eland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have pretty much poured my heart out about how I feel about the AMAZING Merry Clayton in my review on EMOTION so suffice it to say that again the material is just so so on this album BUT the voice is INCREDIBLE ALL 5 of her CDS are a MUST own in any respectable cd collection. Especially if you are a soul fan although if you are a soul fan then you probably already Know about the fabulous Merry Clayton
This and Emotion are probably the two strongest albums BUT then I am hearing them for the first time and first listenings are notoriously undependable. But first impression I like these two best. All this could change LOL doesn't really matter I am listening to MERRY CLAYTON. I wish I had discovered her material at the time of it's release could have made all the difference in my attitude towards it. Music and my tastes have changed so much in the past 30/40 years.
HOWEVER the one thing that hasn't changed is Merry's amazingly wonderful voice. I would buy her cd of Reading the Telephone directory as long as she sang it. THAT voice it get's into my very soul and rips out my spine so that I am left helpless in a pile on the floor wallowing in her MAGIC . For all my medioche reviews of the material I LOVE this woman and her voice I JUST wish she had had better management.
Awesome "Merry" without being Merry 4 Jan. 2015
By M. Rickey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Merry Clayton is so unexpectedly, wildly awesome that it's a shame she never got her due. "20 Feet From Stardom" is a start documenting her fundamental contribution to "Gimme Shelter" that was inexcusably credited solely to the Rolling Stones. That said, this album didn't let "Merry" be Merry. She should have rocked our world. Instead, she got help putting out a really good album. If you are looking for a really good album that might throw some royalties towards a very deserving artist, this is for you. Time passes and that is enough for me now. Still, I wish that 40 years ago Merry Clayton had actually kicked all those asses and took all those names.
