I remember, many years ago, the first time I heard the music of Sly and the Family Stone - it blew my mind. I just loved that group’s fantastic blend of rock and soul music.
More recently, I’ve dug deeper into the music of Curtis Mayfield, especially in the early 70s and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also remember quite some time ago someone (may have been The Kevster) posting in the track of the day thread a superb clip of The Pointer Sisters singing an awesome song called Yes We Can, which, as I was only familiar with their later smooth soul, was a complete surprise to me.
Finally this week, partly as a result of a YouTube clip I watched which recommended this artist and partly as I’ve recently noticed this artist mentioned on this forum, I have discovered the music of Betty Davis. Unbelievably funky! It seems she has an interesting background - briefly married to Miles Davis, friendly with Jimi Hendrix but from around 1979 living a quiet life in Pittsburgh.
Anyway, in the light of the above, I wondered if forum members had some good tips for how to start with a Betty Davis collection (which albums? Vinyl or CD?) and also for recommendations of other similar artists worth investigating.
