Bettye LaVette

Hey guys. I, too, am back from LA -- or rather, a tiny LA suburb. But here is music.


Bettye LaVette

Bluesoul Belles (2005)
Let Me Down Easy
Bettye LaVette is amazing.
I Feel Good All Over
Bettye LaVette is amazing again.

Walter Gibbons

Doin' the Best That I Can 12" (1978)
Doin' the Best that I Can
Walter Gibbons remixes of Bettye LaVette are amazing.



Quick background: the lady hails from Detroit, and the first two songs I picked are off a brilliant compilation that came out earlier this year--Bluesoul Belles, with "the complete Calla, Port, and Roulette recordings" of Ms LaVette and another woman, Carol Fran. LaVette has a very interesting history, but I'm not in the mood to type it out right now (an edit is in the works, friends; I will elaborate on Gibbons too).

Glad you both like it!

Z: I've had a mix ready since, uh, May or something. I keep forgetting to send it off. It's all female and mostly rockabilly, but has little bits of soul in there too.
