From now Tuesdays here at the The Collectionaire will feature new music, only with an "old" twist. Happy listening!
Woman to Woman, Truth/Stax, 1974
Despite starting on the road with Albert King and Little Milton at age 14, soul singer Shirley Brown didn't find fame until 1974 when her Truth Records (Stax subsidiary) release, Woman to Woman became a #1 hit on the R &B Billboard charts. The LP's namesake song- one woman's declaration to her man's lover to leave him be- is as iconic as they come: rich with emotion, beautiful string arrangement, and those famous Stax horns. It was nominated for a Grammy in 1975.
Love is Built On a Strong Foundation, Abet, 1972
