Product Description

• Camille Yarbrough is perhaps best known for ‘Take Yo’ Praise’, which Fatboy Slim remixed as ‘Praise You’ in 1998. • ‘Take Yo Praise’ was originally recorded in 1975 for Camille Yarbrough’s first and only album "The Iron Pot Cooker". The album was based on the very successful 1971 stage dramatization of Yarbrough’s one-woman/spoken word show: Tales and Tunes of an African American Griot (which she toured nationally during the 70s and 80s). • When it was first released in 1975, "The Iron Pot Cooker" received high reviews from local and national media. • With its re-release, the praise continued with Spin Magazine claiming Yarbrough as a "hip-hop foremother". Journalist and hip-hop/social critic Kevin Powell adds: "Indeed, there would be no Lauryn Hill, no Erykah Badu, no Me’Shell NdegéOcello if it were not for the presence and model of Camille Yarbrough". * This CD is the album in its original form, without the Fatboy Slim remix, and with its original sleeve.

There Would Be No Lauryn Hill Without Camille Yarbrough 27 Feb 2000
By Tyler Suchman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The Iron Pot Cooker is a landmark historical album that has been reissued by Vanguard Records. The centerpiece is "Take Yo' Praise," a song that was sampled and made hugely famous by Fatboy Slim. The original version bubbles and smolders, haunting in its passion. Shades of Stevie Wonder support a woman who at times is proud, angry and insightful. A couple of tracks show their age and are a challenge to listen to, but by and large, the album is an important precursor to hip-hop and R&B.
