I was looking for a song from the movie "Dirty Dancing" called "Love Is Strange" and when I discovered Betty Everett sang it I decided to buy her CD titled "Let It Be Me" and listen to more of her songs. I was not disappointed when the album arrived and I listened to it. There are many great songs on this CD: Some of them are sung in duet with Jerry Butler; one of them is the title song "Let It Be Me" (made it to #5 in the U.S. charts in 1964). While listening to the album, I heard another song that I'd heard in the movie "Mermaids" : "It's In His Kiss" (#6 in the U.S. 1964, #34 in the UK 1968).
There are songs of the pain that goes along with love lost. They include "Chained To A Memory," "Until You Were Gone," and "No Place To Hide."
I strongly endorse this CD. It's classy and smooth and evocative of a wonderful musical era. In my opinion, Betty Everett is as
talented (if perhaps not as well-known) as Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross and the Supremes, or Martha Reeves. I wholeheartedly give Best of Betty Everett -- Let It Be Me five stars!

If you're looking for an undiscovered gem, get a hold a Betty Everett "Best of" CD. "Let it be Me" was a song that was, well, I guess you'd call it my parents' courting song. So I grew up listening to it with a great deal of regularity and loved the way her voice worked with Jerry Butler's - much in the same way as Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell worked - magically. It was only when was much older that I realised that the same woman sung "The Shoop Shoop Song", along with "You're No Good", "It's Getting Mighty Crowded" "Hound Dog" & "Can't hear You no More". She has sort of been relegated to R&B obscurity along with great singers like Doris Troy, Anne Peebles & Gladys Horton from the Marvelettes, and a popular resurrection is long overdue!

Her hits pop up from time to time - "Love Is Strange" in Dirty Dancing and "It's in His Kiss" in Mermaids - but why did someone with the talent and consistency of Betty Everett never get the billing of, say, Diana Ross, or Martha Reeves? I can think of few other female artists of the era with the same energy and passion. I could groove to "Chained to Your Love" all night long; her version (the first) of Clint Ballard's "You're No Good" is still the best in my book. But she's tucked away back here and I'm the first person to review her album... pity. Please rectify this situation by buying the album.
