Funk Soul Sisters [coll] – [None]

Ebony chiffon grace and grit, voices of vitality
and vulnerability. Etta James spells out what it
is to be W-O-M-A-N, the buttery entreat of Nina
Simone coos to be rescued, while Dione Warwick
eschews the saintly high road, with enough
pride to hide the pain inside. Music like this
is so strong, simple and true…I don’t mind
writing or hearing cliches. A haircut is a simple
thing, but if you spend all day in the beauty
parlor, look OUT. Similarly these ladies can
gussy up phrases like “Hang On in There” and
“Shake Your Booty.” I dug the brisk guitar flicks
behind Little Denice, the strangely Fripplike
soundscaping with Lynn Christopher. On the funk
to funny phase, Susan struts down Sesame Street
and Patrizia plucks soul from the mouths of babes.
Are you my mother? -Hunger Hears a Hoo Yeah

  • Hey Petra,

    You didn’t leave an email, so I cannot shoot you a response. Will post here like a Bat-Signal…

    I probably picked a copy of that record up at Streetlight in San Jose, or Amoeba in San Francisco, or Rasputin’s in Berkeley. It was a while ago. Looking online, I see


    But I have never dealt with them, so this is no endorsement and who knows if htey have that in stock actually. But that does look like a match…and like ours, it is a 12″ record, not a CD.

    Here’s the track listing if it helps you in your quest…

    1. Little Denise Check Me Out
    2. James, Bryony Feeling Good
    3. Simone, Nina Save Me
    4. Patrizia Trust Your Child
    5. Warwick, Dionne You’re Gonna Need Me
    6. Christopher, Lynn Take Me with You
    7. James, Etta Woman
    8. Air Baby I Don’t Know
    9. Stovell Sisters Hang on in there
    10. Susan Three of These Things

    Good luck…
