    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,
    do you know what precisely this cd is called and where I can get a copy I’ve been looking for it…
    I keep coming up with other versions of the funksoul sister comps, it’s this one I’m after..
    Cheers.
    Petra.

  • 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

    http://www.busstop-records.co.uk/detail.php?cno=DF150

    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…
    -TH
