5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy for soul fans, 15 Oct 2010
By 
Mojito man (Bury, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Hotlanta Soul Vol.1 (Audio CD)
This CD is absolute quality. Loleatta Holloway ranks up there with the very best soul singers, never mind just female singers. There are no naff tracks on this compilation of her best 70s output. This is a must for all fans of real soul music. I can't recommend highly enough. Great value too!

5.0 out of 5 stars SOLID SOUL SISTER, 25 May 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hotlanta Soul Vol.1 (Audio CD)
Having ditched all my vinyl years ago, I was reintroduced to Loleatta by a chance recommendation after her death this year, and I am so pleased. Track 1, Cry to me, is a classic and is worth the price alone. Some of the material is familiar from old albums, but there are plenty of classy tunes to cover all tastes. She really has an unforgettable voice, coupled with brilliant production, makes this my current favourite CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blissfully soulful Loleatta, before disco paid her bills!, 20 Oct 2011
By 
This review is from: Hotlanta Soul Vol.1 (Audio CD)
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.
