Verdelle Smith's star shone brightly. And then she disappeared. Responsible for two of the most sublime moments of '60s pop-soul (In My Room and Tar And Cement) her hits were covered by titans Scott Walker and Nancy Sinatra, she cut an engaging LP (and follow-up 45s), and then vanished, seemingly overnight. Raised as a devout gospel singer Verdelle, buffeted by the murky winds of showbiz, chose to leave music behind and become a lay preacher and social activist. Many have wondered what became of the inspired voice that delivered the moving, timeless lament Tar And Cement. Here at last is Verdelle's story. All original recordings remastered from the original Capitol mastertapes in 2013. 22 tracks available for the first time in four decades! Also includes a 20 page full color booklet with exclusive liner notes and rare photos.
