This particular CD, simply called Bettye Swann, has 22 tracks with some very interesting liner notes. Everything song on this CD to me is beautiful in it's own right and should have garnered a few hits, but alas we know the fickle nature of the music industry. I would however like to share with you some of my favorites from this great album.
1. “(My Heart Is Closed for The Season”- a cute slightly country influenced song with great lyrics that tell a story.
2. “I’m Lonely For You”- This song is on the top of my list and not only has a great melody, and excellent back- up vocals, but a sweet, smooth, mellow sound with a slick story line.
3. “Little Things Mean A Lot”- Her interpretation of this song is soul searching.
4. “Cover Me”- Has a cool laid back soulful groove with great lyrics
5. “Sweet Dreams”- This cover never sounded better and Bettye makes it hers!
6. “You’re Up To You’re Same Old Tricks Again- This fun call and response song has such fun lyrics.
7. “Stand By Your Man”- Bettye gives this country standard just a touch of soul, but stays true to the original.
8. “Angel Of The Morning” and “Traces”- These two last songs on the cd are my ultimate favorites. Bettye sings with and reminiscent sadness couple with a bit of hope and happiness; beautiful rendition.
If you have not heard of Bettye Swann I highly recommend that you check this cd out because you definitely won’t forget her!
This album is highly recommended!
Her voice isn't really over powering; it is a lot closer to Carla Thomas or Gladys Knight than Aretha Franklin but it is immediately attention grabbing. She was special.
I highly recommend this with her Complete Money recordings. You really need both to appreciate her fully.

This album is good, but it is not great. This is a nice CD to have, but it is not essential.Published on August 15, 2013 by Steven Thomas
I first heard Betty do "Don't Touch Me" on an old LP copulation. I then knew I had to get a CD by her. She does all the tracks on this cd in a sexy KITTENISH voice! Read morePublished on February 27, 2008 by Dr.FORREST LEONE
