Product Description

Denise is undoubtedly one of the longest serving Ladies of soul having made her first recordings in the 1960s for the legendary Chess label and she hasn't stopped singing yet. Her initial successes were in the 1970s when she was signed to the Westbound label and was being produced by the inimitable Willie Mitchell. During this period she had 10 R&B hits, four of which, "Trapped By A Thing Called Love", "Now Run And Tell That", "Man Sized Job" and "Married, But Not To Each Other" crossed over to the billboard pop charts. These are of course featured on this album. After leaving Westbound she had a relatively quiet period at ABC Dunhill before signing in 1982 to Malaco Records in her home state of Mississippi. There her success was re-established and in fact it was with this record company that she scored her major international hit, "My Toot Toot" (aka "My Tu Tu"). This anthology, compiled by the guru of black music Ian Dewhirst, brings together all the great recordings from Denise LaSalle. Anyone who likes to hear their music performed with passion, intensity and soul is going to love this collection of her best works.

Format: Audio CD
Sadly this album will possibly be judged by the hit that makes up its title My Toot Toot. This is Denise Lasalle's only top 40 hit (to date!), listen and discover the real lady..... sassy, classy, sexy and clever. The themes these songs deal with are men, men and men!!! The complications of love, the sweetness of revenge, the romance, the nitty gritty and the dishing out of that all important advice. It's not a territory that is hers alone, both Anne Peebles and Millie Jackson cover similar ground, but on this CD Ms Lasalle has her stilleto tapping just a beat louder and clearer than the other ladies. Her delivery is unique, and the voclas heavenly. She can blast and wail and she can tenderly whisper and moan too!! So-called soul divas would kill for just a whiff of this lady's attitude. If the Spice Girls were Girl Power, well then Denise Lasalle is the big bang that created Girl Power. Ironically, this is one of her strongest albums, crystal clear arrangements and a timeless quality to each and every song with My Toot Toot being added to it, and re-titled to boost sales. It's very much an "up" and feelgood collection (not a compilation!!), one for the lady's whilst getting ready for the big night out. The only down part of the CD is an overblown duet ballad which has her crooning (albeit wonderfully), and like Toot Toot doesn't really have a place on this CD. But, two gems that don't sparkle from the enitre CD isn't bad going. If you loved My Toot Toot you will love this, and if you hated My Toot Toot you will love this even more.

Broken jewel case 13 Sep 2010

Product came in a broken jewel case. I would suggest the shipper wrap CD/DVD's in cardboard first then put in a bubble envelope before mailing.
