My funkiest cd so far,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nasty Gal (Audio CD)
Shew, what a treat a for the deep funk lover. I read some review that Bettie Davis is topped only by the king himself, James Brown. That is debatable, but if so, only by a James Brown at his ultimate peak power. And as for female competition, there simply is none! The closest competitors that spring to mind* are Tina Turner in the early seventies, or Joyce Kennedy from Mother's Finest. I ordered Betties' other two albums from the early 70's already.(It's sad to hear from the 30sec soundbites from her last 1979 record how she was squeezed into some boring disco format by that time, so discard that one.)
*If you KNOW Nasty Gal, and still can think of other females that measure up to Bettie Davies in what concers dirty funk, I really wanna know.
