"Thankful" is a milestone in her early repertoire of 70's Soul albums and quite possibly the best one of the three which preceded it. It contains equal amounts of joy, pain and sensuality along with a gospel rouser in the magnificent title track, "Be Thankful." The true gems on this incredible recording include, "Lovers," a Big Band-styled opening track (which she RE-recorded in 1993 for her "Take A Look" CD,) the first single, "Our Love," "Nothin' Stronger than Love," the title track and "Can't Stay Away from You." There isn't a throwaway on this entire album, in fact. I'm also drawn to the second single, "Annie Mae" which tells a poignant story of a girl living on the streets. It's haunting and dramatic, and skillfully written, arranged and produced.
I highly recommend this album and to this day, 35 years later, it remains a beacon in my collection. I was fortunate enough to buy all of these when they were first reissued in 1996 on One Way Records (minus "Inseparable") which I now own anyway and I am so "thankful" to have been touched by this magnificent album/artist since I was an early adolescent. I will always love and applaud her earlier, more soulful efforts during her tenure with Capitol Records from 1975-1981. The lady is a LEGEND!
