Woman Like Me
This album has been a long time coming. Bettye LaVette is one of the all-time R&B greats; yet, aside from European releases, this new CD marks only the second time her talents have been showcased in a full-length album. Here she's joined by three-time Grammy Award winning producer Dennis Walker (Robert Cray, B.B. King), and Bettye's writing and lyrics are top-notch. It all adds up to a superb contemporary blues album, one that looks to the future while paying tribute to Bettye's remarkable past. Features guitarist Bobby Murray and keyboardist Rudy Robinson.
