Not much is known about the mysterious life of Marie Lyons. For a period she was a backing singer for James Brown, released a number of 45's, then this wonderful album before disappearing from the spotlight completely, never to be heard from again. Marie had an incredible soul voice and the music is damn funky, her covers of "Fever" and Brown's "Try Me" are top notch. Maybe you could look at this as a female version of "Skull Snaps" in terms of its mystique within the vinyl hunting community. Thankfully it is now on CD and everyone has the opportunity to discover this brilliant record.

Ya see what happens when ya take a vacation, Bro? Blogger stands itself on end and craps itself!

Anyhow, I'm really looking forward to listening to this one, since this is the kind of thing one of my old radio stations would play back in the 70s (when all the music was better, and all the women were foxy.)

(who misses both)
