Shirley Brown is best remembered for her No 1 R&B hit ‘Woman To Woman’ one of the most recognisable 70’s soul tracks with its monologue intro. The legendary Stax label folded shortly after this and two years later Don Davis signed Shirley to his fledgling Arista label. She cut this fantastic album produced by Bettye Crutcher and Jeff Stewart in Memphis.

Whilst the album did not sell as well as it should have when originally released , it is held in high esteem by her fans and is rated as probably her best album. The first single and album opener ‘Blessed Is The Woman’ is a beautiful ballad that should have been a hit and on every song Shirley is in fine voice. In fact all the nine songs from the original albums, plus the three non –album singles featured here maintain a consistently high quality that Shirley has never managed to replicate. The line up of musicians includes some of the cream of southern soul ft Lester Snell on keyboards, Booker T’s Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn on Bass and Willie Hall on Drums with DJ Rogers on Background vocals on one track. These musicians provide the sympathetic backing that Shirley’s voice soars above showing both the power and at times the vulnerability of her voice.

This is quite simply one of the last great Southern Soul albums ever recorded before the dreaded Synthesizers changed that sound forever. The album has remained a favourite of soul fans and we are proud to present it here on CD for the first time anywhere in the world. The album (plus the 3 bonus cuts) has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and sounds better than ever. - Soul Brother
