Bettye Swann – “Bettye Swann” – [Honest Jons]

This collection by Honest Jons covers semi-obscure soul singer Bettye Swann’s career with Capitol from 1968 and 1970. (Her work with Money Records was recently released on Kent Records.)

This is country-inflected soul music that will have you singing into a hairbrush or crying into a beer, depending upon your disposition.

    I dig the liner notes and how unassuming, indeed retreating from any sort of fame Bettye was. Further proof that it’s the mice that roar?
