We love Betty Davis, as we think most of you do. Seemingly, so does the rest of the discerning, music-loving world as her double blast of reissues (S/T and They Say I’m Different if you’re uninformed) have been popping up on year end lists all across the internet. We here at Light In The Attic wanted to share that love, so for your enjoyment a few of the peeps that loved our lady Betty Davis this year:
The “woman too wild for Miles” was that and so much more. These essential reissues collect the first two albums this onetime wife of Miles Davis made in the early ’70s, and they consist of some of the grittiest, raunchiest funk ever recorded.
Well, the good people at the All Music Guide didn’t have much to say about Ms. Davis, but we imagine that if they did it would be pretty amazing. Seeing how they put us in the same boat as well, Summer Records, Miles Davis, and Neil Young. C’mon, that’s an allstar reissue line-up if we’ve ever seen one.
“A deliciously satisfying gumbo of sensual funk, blues-drenched soul, and bad ass rock, Betty Davis’ They Say I’m Different brings the noise on the sonic and lyrical front … Davis readily engaged the freaky-deke with grace, power, and bravado.”
