Bettye Swann is Soul, this album is a requirement of life, her voice is pure silk. If are in love or unfortunate to have lost that special number one in your life then this album is therapy for both conditions. Even though its from a womans perspective if you recognise the words and emotions then gender isn't relevant. When you hear this album, then you can see that what people class as soul divas today or even talent is a total insult to real talent such as Bettye. Look out for the crediable cover of Sam Cooke's Change is gonna come and my favourite track the acoustic treat " Don't look Back " if I am wrong to say this then buy it and proof me wrong!

I recently purchased this album for the song "make me yours" as I was getting obsessed with it! Since this album has arrived, it's the only music I have played-it's that good!!! I also take it in the car when I go out!
If you love your soul/northern then get this gorgeous album, you will not be disapointed. It is way above average!!!!
Bettye rules!

This is a re-issue of Swann's "Make me yours" album together with seveal non-album singles and previously unreleased alternate tracks.
Bettye Swann recorded this album in 1967 for the LA based label Money. Swann is not one of the really famaous Ladies of Soul. She is also not the unknown heroin of Soul singing. Swann is an above average Soul singer with some good compositions. Only one of her singles, "Make me yours", became number 1 in the R&B charts. Other singles reached mid-table of the R&B charts, if they reached the charts at all. This does not mean that her other tracks are not as good as "Make me yours", but they do not stand out in the overall Soul production of the late sixties.
Conclusion: This is an average Soul record, therefor an average rating.

HASH(0x8639854c) out of 5 stars Bettye's a Little Country and a Little Soul! 24 Aug. 2009
By Garby Gable - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bettye Swann was born Betty Jean Champion from Shreveport, Louisiana, and when she moved to Los Angelas in 1964, she signed with Money Records. This collection contains all the tracks she recorded, released and unreleased under the Money Records label in their original or later forms.

The album opens with Bettye's biggest chart success (#1 R&B, and #21 on Billboard Hot 100), the catchy, and soul infused, "Make Me Yours," which is followed by "Fall In Love With Me," a personal favorite for me. "Don't Look Back," can best be described as being a "soulful motown type tune," maybe because Smokey Robinson was one of the writers. "Don't Wait Too Long" reached #27 on the R&B charts, and has a real "old school" soul sound. In my opinion,"Don't Take My Mind" should have charted, but maybe because it sounded too much like a few other songs at the time, but the self penned song definitely leaves an impression on the listener. She does a great cover of Ray Charles' "I Can't Stop Loving You," completely capturing the mood and making it her own. I happen to like the rhythm and beat of "I Think I'm Falling In Love," and it is another favorite of mine on this collection that I play over and over. "You Gave Me Love," "The Heartache is Gone," "I Will Not Cry," clearly demonstrate her vocal range, and is what makes Bettye Swann so special. "What Is My Life Coming To" is the type of deep down soul that speaks to you. Of course you can't help but enjoy her version of Sam Cooke's "Change Is Gonna Come."

Other songs in the collection include "Lonely Love," and "The Dance Is Over." It should be mentioned that Bettye wrote all of the songs on these recordings except: "Don't Look Back," "I Can't Stop Loving You," "What Is My Life Coming To," and "A Change Is Gonna Come."

What's also great about this collection is that it provides alternate takes of "Make Me Yours," "I Will Not Cry," "I Think I am Falling In Love" (fast version), "You Gave Me Love," "Our Love," (slightly slower) "You Gave Me Love," and "Don't Look Back," on the latter track you can hear her ask whether or not the recording is too slow, demonstarting her comittment to the listener. The CD insert is very infromative and provides details of her recording career.

This is another excample of yet another great soul singer, whose lack of chart success may have limited her wider appeal. However, her ability to sing soul, country, gospel, and pop are second to none, and this great lady should have had greater recognition. Like Candi Staton, she did find later success during the 70's with "Victim of a Foolish Heart," when she was recording under the Atlantic label.

If you want to hear soul in it's early years, this would be the CD to buy, and I am sure it will lead you to some of her other recordings, most notably the album "Bettye Swann," where she does a little bit of everything.

HASH(0x85f70774) out of 5 stars Sampling Of The Career Of A Superb Country Soul Artist 10 Aug. 2007
By George O'Leary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Betty Jean Champion was born in Shreveport, Louisiana on October 24, 1944 and began her singing career at the start of the 1960s as a member of The Fawns. As a solo artist under her new stage name, and with a LA-based Money recording contract, she was handed a tune written by Carolyn Franklin, Don't Wait Too Long, and saw it go to # 21 R&B and reach # 131 on the Billboard Pop Hot 100 "bubble under" charts in March 1965 b/w What Is My Life Coming To?

This modest beginning was then followed by two flops that same year, The Man Who Said No/What Can It Be? and The Heartache Is Gone/Our Love. There were no Money releases at all in 1966, but in June 1967 she scored her greatest hit ever when Make Me Yours went all the way to # 1 R&B and a quite respectable # 21 on the Hot 100 b/w I Will Not Cry.

The follow-up Fall In Love With Me didn't do nearly as well, however, reaching only # 36 R&B/# 67 Hot 100 that October b/w Lonely Love. and this was followed by two more failures, Don't Look Back/You Gave Me Love and I Think I'm Falling In Love/Don't Take My Mind. In between she had her first album released, appropriately titled Make Me Yours, containing the afore-mentioned singles along with A Change Is Gonna Come and something that hinted at future directions as a purveyor of Country soul - the Don Gibson Country classic I Can't Stop Loving You.

After a two-year absence from the charts she was hired by Capitol where she delivered several vastly underrated [and uncharted] singles that should have fared better, among them Don't You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me/Willie And Laura Mae Jones. Then came her second-best hit ever, Don't Touch Me, which went to # 14 R&B/# 37 Hot 100 in early 1969. She also cut two more albums for Capitol, The Soul View Now and Don't You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me? each of which continued to demonstrate her preference for Country with selections like Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye, Sweet Dreams, Stand By Your Man, and Today I Started Loving You Again.

After a brief stopover with the Fame label in 1971 [I'm Just Living A Lie/I Can't Let You Break My Heart], a move to Atlantic Records did not change her Country soul focus and in 1972 she had Victim Of A Foolish Heart go to # 16 R&B/# 63 Hot 100 in July, followed late that year by a re-recording of the Merle Haggard hit Today I Started Loving You Again [# 26 R&B/# 46 Hot 100]. That would be her final pop entry, but four more R&B hits would follow, the last coming in 1976 for Big Tree when a duet with Sam Dees, Storybook Children, reached # 84.

After that she just seemed to disappear from view which is too bad because, at age 32, her voice was at its peak. While this otherwise excellent U.K. release with its beautiful sound reproduction and extensive liner notes focuses on her Money years, the real gems are to be found in those Capitol and Atlantic releases which, hopefully, will be produced rogether on one CD in the not-too-distant future.
