THIS YOUNG LADY FROM NEWARK, NEW JERSEY COULD HAVE BEEN A DIVA IN SOUL MUSIC HISTORY! HOWEVER, SHE DID LEAVE HER MARK. "HYPNOTIZED", "WHAT HAVE I DONE", "YOUR PRECIOUS LOVE", AND "I'LL BE SWEETER TOMMORROW (THAN I WAS YESTERDAY"; LINDA HAD A VOICE THAT HAD AN "EVIL" RANGE! ALOT OF THE MATERIAL PRESENTED TO HER WAS FROM SMALL, FLEDGING, INDEPENDENT RECORD LABELS. SHE NEVER REALLY HAD A CHANCE TO SHOW MAINSTREAM SOUL LISTENERS, SHE COULD SING ALA: ARETHA, GLADYS, NATALIE, AND CHAKA! SHE'S UP THERE IN "SOUL HEAVEN." NOT WITH THOSE MORE MEMORABLE...BUT, SHE'S THERE JUST THE SAME. "A TRUE GODSEND"...LINDA JONES."

Linda Jones is my FAVORITE singer! She has a BIG voice with an emotional intensity and range that would put most trained opera singers to shame. Linda Jones was 28 when she died in 1972 and had only had two low ranked singles on the charts. The productions are kind of tinny, the background vocals aren't always in pitch. There are ants in the Grand Canyon, too. Most of these songs have been on other CDs but the transfer here is Very Nice and "I Who Have Nothing" is a fine replacement for my very worn 45 single which cost almost as much as this whole album. Buy this while you can! It's AMAZING!

There's not many singers I sit with Mr. Soul, Sam Cooke. Not many at all. I can count them on one hand. Sister Linda makes the cut. Definitely. Untouchable really.

This sister is the very embodiment of the term, "A Singer's Singer." I'm trying to recall when I've heard melisma and vocal control as this. I can't. The power, the intensity, the range, the texture, that hardhitting gospel sound. It's so downright incredibly amazing.. it's almost supernatural. Mr. Soul himself, Sam Cooke (whom Linda was OBVIOUSLY influenced by) would have been a huge fan of hers, I'm sure of it.

Boy, and I thought I could really sing, lol. Sister Linda Jones has definitely put ME in MY place, lol. What she does with "Your Precious Love" is ............. I'm speechless. She's as much the Queen of Soul as is the great Aretha Franklin in my book. How I wish that we could get soul/R&B music back to this standard.

I LOVE this sister.

I listened to Linda in my hometown on Sunday nites (WDAS FM with Holiday or Butterball). I always waited for your preicous love or hypnotized, man, could she blow. She sings a song like nobody business. Her range was incredible and she always brought emotion to whatever song she sang. Nobody does it better!!I am always surprised with people who don't know who she is. After I purchased this cd I found other gems I really love. I recommend getting the cd cause nowadays your not gonna find anyone who puts all that emotion in a song well there is Phyllis Hyman.
