Twist And Shout

Reissue of this 1990 collection from the Soul vocalist. Bettye LaVette's appearance at Barack Obama's inauguration concert in January 2009, singing 'A Change Is Gonna Come', introduced her to a global audience of millions who had hitherto been totally unaware of her immense talent and interpretive powers. She is a true American music legend, although the critical acclaim, awards and accolades, deservedly showered upon her in recent years, were a long time coming. Lavette recorded for a variety of label's from the early '60s onwards but many Soul fans regard the material she recorded for Silver Fox and SSS International in Memphis in the late '60s and early '70s as some of her finest. Nearer to You, is a complete collection of the great Soul singer's recordings from these labels. It includes her collaborations with Hank Ballard plus two bonus tracks from 1978.
