‘Black Ruby’ from 1972 was Ruby Andrews’ second album for Zodiac Records and is a really solid set of dancers and beat ballads with Ruby’s powerful vocals shining throughout. The bgi-city funky soul of ‘(I Want To be) Whatever It Takes To Please You’ and ‘Overdose Of Love’ are counterbalanced by the mellow, plaintive ‘The Love I Need’. The irresistible funky soul groove of ‘You Made A Believer Out Of Me’ is a bubbling dancer, ‘Just Loving You’ is one of those magical tracks that can be played forever and still sound incredible, the tough funker ‘Didn’t I Fool You’ is a highlight as is the screaming version of ‘Hound Dog’ where she sounds like Bettye Davis. Great album, hard to find on original.
