Format: Audio CD
Betty Wright, born on December 21, 1953 in Miami, began her singing career as a member of the Gospel group Echoes Of Joy with sister Jeanette Holloway and brothers Philip "Leno Philips" and Milton, and her earliest recordings were made at age 13 for Miami's Deep City Records. By the time she was 15 she was recording for Henry Stone and Steve Alaimo's label, Alston Records (whose distribution was handled by the Atco subsidiary of Atlantic Records), and in August of 1968 had her first hit when Girls Can't Do What the Guys Do hit # 15 R&B and also made the Billboard Pop Hot 100 at # 33.

Not a bad debut, but when nothing else worked throughout the rest of 1968 and all of 1969 they likely began to wonder if they had another One-Hit Wonder on their hands. None among He's Bad, Bad Bad/Watch Out, Love in 1968, The Best Girls Don't Always Win/Circle Of Heartbreaks, The Wrong Girl/The Joy Of Becoming A Woman, I'm Not Free Hearted/A Woman Was Made For One Man and Soldier Boy (also b/w A Woman Was Made For One Man) - all in 1969 - could dent the Top 100 of either chart. Nor did things look all that much brighter when Pure Gold topped out at # 40 R&B in September 1970, followed by another flop, I Found A Guy/If You Love Like I Love You, and in August 1971 I Love The Way You Love could only manage a # 44 R&B and # 109 Hot 100 "Bubble Under."

But late in 1971 it seemed like she finally broke out when Clean Up Woman spent eight weeks at # 2 R&B (kept from the # 1 slot by The Chi-Lites' Have You Seen Her?, Family Affair by Sly & The Family Stone, and Let's Stay Together by Al Green) and also got as high as # 6 Hot 100, b/w I'll Love You Forever (also in this set).

The Platinum Collection actually contains 20 songs from Betty's stint on Atlantic Records (and not 16 as the Amazon description claims). The song "Tonight's the Night" does NOT appear on this CD, unfortunately. The Platinum Collection is actually quite good, but it does not include anything from the late 70's forward.
