The hidden queen of 60s soul,
This review is from: Betty Harris Soul Perfection (Audio CD)
Betty Harris only came to my attention through the Saturday Night Fish Fry compilations produced by Soul Jazz records. This CD contains virtually all of her output from the 1960s.
As well as being a fantastic soul diva, she benefitted from some of the sharpest, tightest production and songwriting teams around - in particular Allen Toussaint, master of the 60's new orleans R&B sound. The tracks are varied, ranging from dark & soulful numbers (I'm Evil Tonight) to up-tempo floorshakers (Mean Man).
One listen & you'll see why Betty Harris should be up there in the Premier League of female soul singers.
