After so a lot of years of after-the-fact, one can critique time and again about an under-utilized artist. I have fun reading reviews by those who weren't even born when these artists were making their tag with Motown.I remember hearing 'You've Created Me So Very Happy" on the radio in 1968, and was blown away by it's complexity. Though I think the key range was a small too high for her. When I heard Blood, Sweat & Tears ver a few years later, I wasn't impressed. I have a hard time accepting cover versions. The song to me sounded more appropriate from a woman's point of enda was under-appreciated at Motown. She was a various type of singer for the company. Not pop, not middle-of-the-road, not R&B, but somehow, all in there somewhere. True, with the legacy she left us, she could sing, but the styles she sang were all over the at is why I liked, and still like y consider the fact that she was recording from the West Coast, as opposed to recording in Detroit. She did record in Detroit, but she didn't have much control with the recording sessions. You can tell she sometimes sounds uncomfortable with a half of the material here, as if the company was trying to sabotage her with recording backing tracks that were an octave took matter, they are classic is set is one of the best that is offered so far on her career, tho Motown is due to release an Anthology on her with more unreleased tracks.5 stars for superb sound quality!
I love this CD. This contains all the unbelievable Brenda Holloway early hit recordings. She was a stunning beauty with a unbelievable voice. She wrote "You create me so very Happy" which was later recorded by Blood Sweat and Tears. You will really have fun this import.
This lady came along during the time when a recording artist had to have TALENT to even be considered for a recording deal. Thank God that Brenda Holloway came along, and, YES, she had and STILL has REAL talent. I remember "Every Small Bit Hurts" (flip side "Land of a Thousand Boys") coming out in 1964. It was HOT then and sounds just as amazing now-almost 50 years later! Thank you for making this musicavailable. It is CLASSIC, as Brenda Holloway is CLASSIC.
