Tommie Young's voice is wonderful on these recordings, reminding me of Doris Duke. Unfortunately, she was recording for a minor label in a golden era for female soul singers which must have hampered her progress. If you like your soul music dripping with emotion, buy this album - it's superb.

I have collected the majority of the backbeats series over the past year or two and thought I would take the plunge and check out the artists series starting with Tommie Young. Without getting too technical about it, this album is definitely one for real soul lovers. The vocals are extremely dynamic and moving, hit you where it matters most. I also highly recommend the Laura Lee album.
