4.0 out of 5 stars Aged 15 when I first bought it, 17 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Phew! (Audio CD)
Very much welcome this CD issue of an album I bought when it first came out back in 1973. At the time I was growing up/living in Perth, Western Australia and my interest in music of this sort was not widely appreciated at the time! My friends strugged with Aretha's "Young, Gifted And Black", Esther Phillips's "From A Whisper To A Scream", The Pointer Sisters' first album and even Gladys Knight's and The Pips "Imagination" LP. And here was Claudia Lennear, with great heritage, and with some visibility to us (then) in Australia who were great fans of Joe Cocker and Leon Russell and also fans of Ike and Tina Turner's "Working Together"/"Come Together" days. It's good that this is back to grace our CD shelves ... I always have trouble with Allen Toussaint songs if they are not brilliantly constructed, well supported and superbly sung (thanks Irma Thomas!), but this is a fair stab on what was the second side of the LP. The first side is much more interesting, however. But this is a good, good voice and needs to see the light of day. And as a gay boy of 15 in an incredibly oppressive Western Australia at the time, I - unlike one or more of the critics here on the Amazon of then 18 years of age - it was the music I was immediately, and only, drawn to!
