Betty Davis: Is It Love or Desire
Buy! - (Light in the Attic)
The raunchy soul singer was dropped from Island Records after the release of her excellent 1975 album Nasty Gal. This was the projected 1976 follow-up, and it’s never been released until now. Like Nasty Gal, it was produced by Davis herself, though it might be even better than that landmark album. Betty’s band Funk House was in prime form here, laying down some of the fieriest hardcore funk around while Davis continued to stretch herself vocally and lyrically, singing, shouting, purring and growling with total confidence on some of her most powerful songs. 10/8/2009 - Don Yates
